Due to the drought last year, it got off to a decent start early in the hot bed, hand watered and fed organically. After I transplanted them outside, two plants got frost bit...I was testing to see how frost hardy these were. The next planting I gave them night cover, and sometimes used a low watt night light inside their grow boxes. Those lived and were a lot tastier than later plantings of it. Wife loved it better than I did, but she used it with peanut butter, and I used it lightly steamed with garlic tips, dandelion leaves, and kale. Made a light honey sauce using my own hive herbal honey, and a bit of organic vinegar. That was tasty since it was the first salad greens of the season. Later plantings of it did not produce like I'd hoped for market uses, but it was too hot in the spring and too dry for adequate production. The fall crop accomplished what I'd hoped it'd do in the spring. Will try again this spring in a plunge bed.
