Why kale is considered a superfood
With kale being praised as a superfood and kale chips being all the rage, it could be time to plant kale in your garden this year!
Kale is a nutrient-dense cool-season crop that is easy to grow and harvest in as little as a month after seeding. Plant seeds right after the last frost date, or start seeds inside four to six weeks before the last frost date. Choose a place with good drainage and partial to full sun. Allow about a foot between seedlings to allow older plants to reach their maximum potential height. Full-grown leaves can be anywhere from 12 to 30 inches long, depending on the variety.
Kale is a dependable and reliable vegetable
Gather a few extra seeds and intend to sow succession plantings every three weeks to ensure continual harvests of this culinary staple. Leaves can be harvested from the same plant throughout the season, while younger plants provide more decadent leaves. Kale is a tough plant that thrives in cooler climes, so don't be concerned about chilly spring evenings or frigid fall mornings. Because the plant produces more sugars to protect itself from freezing during cold spells, kale leaves will taste even sweeter. You can always count on a kale crop in your garden if nothing else is growing.
