Plant as soon as the ground can be worked, very frost tolerant. Sow 1⁄4-1⁄2 inches deep, 1 inch apart in rows 18-30 inches apart. Thin seedlings to 8-12 inches apart. Kale germinates easily in cool or warm soil temperatures with even moisture.
Choose an area with full sun and soil pH of 6.0-7.0. Enrich the soil with compost or well-rotted manure. Flavour is improved if the plants grow quickly. Kale benefits from additional feedings of liquid fertilizer during the growing season.
Leaves can be used at any time for salads or as garnishes. Leaves are cropped, leaving the bud to grow new leaves, or the entire plant is harvested at one cutting. For a fall crop, wait until the plants are touched by a frost to sweeten the taste.
