KALE


Tips & tricks: Plant out at a distance of 40cm from each other and water in well. Kale can be planted anytime from late spring until mid-summer, and will continue through the entire winter. Pick outer and lower leaves as it grows, leaving the central leaves to regenerate for a continual harvest. In the spring the plants will start to flowering: the flowering stalks with unopened flower buds are also delicious, cook them just like bimi (sprouting broccoli).
