  1. A Description of Kale

    History: Kale is an ancient plant and one of the first cultivated brassicas, not much different now than its original wild ancestor. Native to the coastal areas of Britain and northern Europe, kale has been grown for its nutritious and tasty greens for over 2000 years. Cultivation: Kale is a cool weather plant; start indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost by sowing 1/4" deep in soil-less mix in flats, or direct sow in mid-summer for a fall/winter crop. Thin to 18-24" apart. Companions: beans, beets, lettuce promote growth; onions, sage,thyme and nasturtiums deter pests including aphids and cabbage moths.
