LET’S GET GROWING #11
“Kale is kind of like basil: you really can’t grow too much of it.” - Willi Galloway
I could not agree with Ms Galloway more!
After running around Seattle looking for the variety I wanted, I finally found the last two sets of Lacinato kale starts in Woodinville (and perhaps all of Western Washington) at Molbaks. Kale should ultimately be grown with about 8 inches between each plant (unless they are being harvested for baby greens). Wait until early summer to mulch using a 3-inch layer of straw, mulching in springtime attracts undesirable slugs.
