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, which will provide leaves that turn ambrosial when sauteed with garlic and doused lightly with apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper. 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. Give the plants highly fertile soil and a spacing of twelve to eighteen inches depending on variety.

We carefully select our produce varieties for excellent taste and quality. Our produce is grown without pesticides or herbicides resulting in highly nutritious food and healthy soil.
