Kale

Happy December!

David and I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving spent with family and friends. We had fun. Thinking about all we have makes us so grateful to our Heavenly Father for his bounty, especially as we look out across our little farm.

Today, we want to talk to you about Kale. Kale is cold hardy so you can grow it in the winter in the southern United States. Of course, it grows well in the spring, too.

Tender kale leaves can be eaten in salads. The more mature leaves can be cooked or can be put in fruit smoothies for healthy goodness.

Not all kale is created equally. Some of the varieties are good for spring and summer planting, such as Russian Kale varieties. Some are good for fall planting and overwintering, like Toscano and Lacinato Kale. Read the information on the variety you want to try and plant it during the appropriate season.

Kale planted during the cooler months tends to be sweeter because the starches in the plant turn to sugars. So you know it will be good in salads and you won't have to disguise it in smoothies. Yes, you can actually enjoy eating the young leaves.
