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.

(Look under bed-prep for Olive's Mix - a great way to prepare the soil and feed one time a year!) Organic fertilizers do best when incorporated into the soil. One or two inches works whiile spreading it on the surface doesn't)  Chemical fertilizers such as Start-n-Grow and Gardner's Special can be spread on to; water brings them to the roots.

Harvesting - just get ‘em before the bugs, varmits, or neighbors do!
