When to Plant:

  • Kale can be planted at any time, from early spring to early summer. Be mindful, as hot weather makes kale bitter.
  • If planted late in the summer, you can harvest it from fall until the ground freezes.

How to Grow:

  • Plant ¼ to ½ inch deep in an area with well-drained, loamy soil.
  • If planting in cool season, select an area that will get full sun. Choose partial shade if growing in the warm season.
  • Seeds will sprout best in soil around 70 degrees F.
  • After 2 weeks, thin seedlings so they are spaced 8 to 12 inches apart.
  • Water the plants regularly, but take care not to over water.
  • Mulch the soil heavily after first freeze.

When to Harvest:

  • Kale is ready to harvest when the leaves are about the size of your hands.
  • Avoid picking the terminal bud at the top center of the plant, as this will keep the plant productive.
  • Only pick about a fistful of leaves per harvest.
  • Kale grows until it’s about 20 degrees F - a touch of frost actually sweetens the flavor.
