How to Sow - Sow in full sun in early spring; midsummer for fall crop. In Deep South, Gulf and Pacific Coast areas, sow from fall to early spring. Plant seeds evenly and thinly and cover with 1/4" of fine soil. Firm lightly. Plants emerge in 10-21 days.

How to Grow - Before transfer to the garden, accustom to outdoor conditions by moving to a sheltered area outside for a week. Set kale plants 1-1 1/2’ apart in a sunny location. Kale prefers rich, well-drained soil, and can tolerate light shade. Avoid area where any of cabbage family grew the year before.

Harvesting - Harvest kale after first frost if you prefer a sweeter flavor. Pick the outer leaves as needed once they reach 6-8" long- about 55-60 days after transplanting. Leave the central bud since it will grow new leaves. Use kale as a substitute for lettuce, cooked cabbage and collards.
