I always wanted to know which veggies were okay to plant in the colder months. Thank so much for this post! Enjoy all your Kale. I'm going to go to the kitchen and enjoy some too

It's not my favorite, but my wife lightly blanches it to take some of the harsh flaver away and it's not bad if you use the right dressing and add some good stuff to it.

&Javaman74 Nah... you're not crazy. All sane people love kale. ;)

&Jansweeps I have done that with limited success here. Every time I plan on a "normal" first frost date, it never happens.

yeah, all that is true but I don't eat it. Thanks for sharing.

I planted some last week in hopes that it would be ready nearer to the fall. I think I'll get another packet or two and put them in the garden after the green beans are done too. Actually I'm planting a lot of cold weather vegetables toward the end of summer.

&PatV I saw a picture if kale chips on Pinterest recently. I have not tried them yet but it sounded interesting.

&Carmelanirel As I told &sandyjames be sure to use only the young, tender leaves. It's great in salads.

&PatV I love kale in my smoothies, but I didn't consider using them in salads..Sounds great..

&sandyjames Choose only the young leaves for salads if you don't want to wait for the buds and flowers. When the leaves get older, they get tough and strong tasting and are better cooked.

I love kale. It is awesome in stirfrys and cole slaw

&GardenGerty There's no difference. You can eat ornamental kale and it's just as nutritious. It's a good way to have your kale and eat it too... (sorry, couldn't resist).

I'm growing kale and didn't know you could use them in salads. I will try this in my next salad.

I have not tried it but have wanted to. I see it sometimes as an ornamental, do you know, is there any difference?

I grew up in West Virginia. My mother cooked Kale. I remember eating it as a child.
