It can be used many ways. Even chickens like the used green leaves. It is a heavy feeder.

Apply at least 10 pounds of a high-grade complete fertilizer per 100 feet of row when set or before. Then add a couple of side dressings of nitrogen fertilizer.

Give the first soon after plants are set or when growth has started, and the second when the leaves begin to bunch for heading. Use 1 pound per 100 feet of row each time. Make rows 3 feet wide and set plants or thin to one for each 12 to 24 inches, depending on variety.

For the fall crop, sow seed during July or August in the row where they are to remain. Thin to one plant the desired distances.
