Kale is one of the few vegetables you can harvest from your garden in January. John actually did this week! I cleaned,chopped and boiled the kale last night for dinner. I added butter when done and John jazzed it up with some vinegar. What a really great green treat! Kale actually tastes sweeter and more flavorful after a frost. In the garden Kale rarely suffers from pests or diseases. While other cabbage family plants are attacked by aphids, the kale gets almost none. Kale is loaded with vitamins and pretty rich in calcium too. I am going to try and grow more than one variety this year. Russian Red looks good.....
