Kale


Grown for its greens, Kale can be used to dress up salads, in stir fries, as a garnish, or mashed with potatoes and sausage (German and Dutch delicacy). Rich in Vitamin C and other minerals. Frost improves flavour. CULTURE: Mainly grown for fall and winter crop. Will remain alive into winter and over winter in mild areas. For early crops start indoors 4-6 weeks before planting out. For late crops, seed direct in June-July. SOIL: Kale will tolerate a broad range of soil, but prefers sandy loam. PH 6.5-7 FERTILITY: Ensure adequate levels of nitrogen. Keep a regular watering schedule so plants do not wilt in heat. GERMINATION: Sow in plugs at 70F/ 21C for 7 days. Or outdoors in warm soil. SPACING: Transplant or thin seedlings out to 40-45cm/16-18". 
 For continuous picking, harvest leaves just below the growth point.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
