PLANTING: Plant about 3 weeks or so before first fall frost date. Can also be planted in early spring. Sow seed 1/2-1″ deep, 1-2″ apart. Thin plants to 8-10″ apart after emerge. Thinning can be transplanted or eaten. HARVEST: By clipping individual leaves. Kale is very hardy and will increase its eating quality after a frost or if kept into early winter. You will need 1/4 oz per 100′
