***KALE GROWING GUIDE BELOW***

Kale is a hardy, cool-season green that is part of the cabbage family. It grows best in the spring and fall and can tolerate all fall frosts. Kale can be used in salads or as a garnish and is rich in minerals and vitamins A and C.

PLANTING

You can plant kale anytime from early spring to early summer. If you plant kale late in the summer you can harvest it from fall until the ground freezes in winter.

Mix 1-½ cups of 5-10-10 fertilizer per 25 feet of row into the top 3 to 4 inches of soil.

Plant the seeds ¼ to ½ inch deep into well-drained, light soil.

After about 2 weeks, thin the seedlings so that they are spaced 8 to 12 inches apart.

PLANT CARE

Water the plants regularly but be sure not to over water them.

Mulch the soil heavily after the first hard freeze; the plants may continue to produce leaves throughout the winter.

PESTS/DISEASES

Cabbageworms

Flea beetles

Aphids
