KALE HEIRLOOM SEEDS :
- It is a hardy, cool-season green that is part of the cabbage family.
- Kale can be used in salads or as a garnish and is rich in minerals and vitamins A and C.
- Mix 1-½ cups of 5-10-10 fertilizer per 25 feet of row into the top 3 to 4 inches of soil.
- Plant the seeds ¼ to ½ inch deep into well-drained, light soil.
- After about 2 weeks, thin the seedlings so that they are spaced 8 to 12 inches apart.
- Mulch the soil heavily after the first hard freeze; the plants may continue to produce leaves
- Water the plants regularly but be sure not to overwater them.
- Kale is ready to harvest when the leaves are about the size of your hand.
- Pick about one fistful of leaves per harvest. Avoid picking the terminal bud (found at the top center of the plant) because this will help to keep the plant productive.
- Kale will continue growing until it’s 20 degrees F.
- The picture is an indication of type only.
