  1. Question

    Margaret FitzGibbon

    Seed arrived late due to covid. Would I be better off growing in my (unheated) greenhouse to extend the season (we are zone 5-6) or do you think I could still get an outdoor harvest? Plants germinated 5/27.

      These never do much in the garden until the weather really warms up, then grow very quickly. you have plenty of time, and frankly may be better off with something like this starting later as opposed to earlier. r
