Growing Kale: Kale is one of the most nutritious plants you can grow in the garden, and is packed with vitamins. Kale grows best in rich well composted moist soil with a PH between 6.2 and 6.8. Kale likes a nice, even supply of water, about 1 to 1.5 inches per week. Plant seeds a 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep and 3 inches apart. Set out seedlings 18 to 24 inches apart. Can be grown throughout the winter in USDA zones 7 - 9.


Care of Swiss Chard:

Plants may continue to produce leaves throughout the winter if you mulch the soil heavily after the first hard freeze.

Kale is ready to harvest when the leaves are about the size of your hand.

Side dressing throughout the growing season with compost or feeding with some type of high nitrogen fertilizer

Never pick all the leaves, or the ones right in the center or you will kill the plant.

Cool weather and light frost improves the flavor of kale.

Can tolerate drought, but quality and flavor of leaves suffer.
