I just have to say it once more: kale is amazing! I picked this kale yesterday morning, leaves frozen on the stalk, snow on the ground. I had already picked most of the kale–just leaving a few tiny leaves that didn’t seem big enough for anything. But they must have grown a little in the meager sunlight and freezing snowy weather we’ve been having the last two weeks of November. I don’t know how they do it, but that is why they are so amazing. The plant just isn’t willing to succumb to the freeze/thaw weather that has killed off most of the other plants. So when I was walking through the winter orchard, I found several small frozen leaves, broke them off, and cooked them up for breakfast–they taste great!
That is so cool! I was thinking of planting kale…next year!
Definitely do it! I did it from small plants I purchased because we don’t have a good way to grow from seed. You just have to pick off any green cabbage worms that show up. (Eggs laid by little white moths.)
The green that keeps on giving. Not wimpy like spinach. Yay, kale!
