Details

Kale comes in many degrees of frill, from broad flat Russian varieties--at one end of the spectrum--to the undulating, nearly serrated Vates Blue Curled at the other end. It's the kale often used as garnishes--but what a waste! It's so delicious and toothsome when braised! Also great in a potato-based soup or as part of a stir fry, where its more rigid texture holds its own, never melting away like a less crinkly variety. Plants are compact but productive--harvest for weeks and weeks.

Kale likes to be transplanted--even the summer sowing--and it wastes less garden space to do so. It also gives the seedlings a head start against the flea beetles, which will happily munch on kale seedlings if eggplants and mustards are unavailable. Sown in early March and transplanted in mid-April, you can begin harvesting delicate frilly leaves in late May. Sow again in late June or early July for a fall crop. Give the plants highly fertile soil.
