These plants do best in cooler weather.  (if the nineties are the rule, it's still too hot)  Most can take freezing weather and snow.  (same for transplants and seeds)

All like improved soil.  Work compost into the soil before planting.  Top dress with pine bark mulch (after seeds are up - or expose soil in seed "lanes").  Mulching keeps moisture in.  Olive's Planting Guide is very helpful.

As needed, but generally in warmer weather, water twice a week.  Cooler: once a week.  If you don't mulch, you have to water more often.

Organic foods like Garden-Glo and John Drumgole's Recipe can be used at planting and repeated monthly or as needed.  Chemical fertilizers such as Start-n-Grow and Gardner's Special can be used the same.

Harvesting - just get ‘em before the neighbors or the rabbits do!
