A “super food” loaded with high levels of beta-carotene, vitamins A,C, K, and powerful antioxidants like Quescertin and Kaempferol. They have powerful heart-protective, blood pressure-lowering, anti-inflamatory, anti-viral, anti-depressant and anti-cancer effects.
How to Grow: Kale enjoys a well-drained, rich soil and consistent moisture for the tastiest leaves. Sow seed 1 cm (1/2”) deep directly outdoors in early spring or from June to early July in rows 60 cm (24”) apart. Thin seedlings to 30 cm (12”) apart.
Harvesting: Begin about 60 days after sowing by clipping individual leaves. Kale is very cold tolerant and develops its best flavour after the fall frosts. Protect with a floating row cover to extend the fall harvest.
