- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
