Fruits and Vegetables, Grains and Grasses

Sow singly in small, ideally biodegradable pots in spring, 65-75F/18-24C, 4 weeks before last frost. Transplant 2 weeks after last frost or later, up to early summer, as it likes warmer soil. Set rows 3' apart, and transplant only this one time. Outside, sow from last frost date, 1/2" deep, 4" apart, rows spaced 3', direct to their final location. May start 2 weeks earlier under glass or plastic

Thin later to 10-12" apart, more for some varieties, and water very regularly, full sun, very well-draining soil

Extra-sweet corn is best planted one month into the growing season. Most forms of corn require long growing season, 70 days or more in length, though some are rated at 55 days or less

Corn salad, lamb's lettuce, nusslisalat, mache, lambs lettuce (Valerianella locusta)
