Plant transplants 10 inches apart. For direct seeding, plant 1/2-inch deep and 1-2 inches apart. Plant in full sun in cool climates, and filtered sun where summers heat up quickly.
When plants are 2 inches tall, thin to 10 inches apart and eat the thinnings! Plant every couple of weeks for a longer harvest. Stop planting when the weather turns hot, then start new plants for fall in late summer. In the fall the long harvest window is advantageous to home gardeners.
