Direct sow after last frost date, covering lightly.  Thin to 12 inches between plants.  Harvest heads in August once you seed the birds going for them- be sure to cut them before too many fall!  Harvest into a bag, beat or stomp on the bags to free the seeds from the head, and use screens or fans to separate seeds from chaff.
