Question

WE PLANTED SOME KALE PLANTS EARLIER IN THE YEAR WHICH WE HAD BOUGHT FROM A NURSERY WE HAD NEVER GROWN THEM BEFORE AND SO WAS A BIT UNSURE WHEN TO HARVEST THEM. HEY LOOKED SO GOOD WE DECIDED TO TAKE A CHANCE AND WE HARVESTED 1 PLANT AND COOKED IT - IT WAS LOVELY(WE HAD NEVER TASTED IT BEFORE) WE HEN LOOKED IT UP IN OUR MANUAL AND FOUND THAT ITSHOULD ONLY BE HARVESTED FROM DEC ONWARDS!!IT LOOKED AND TASTED GOOD TO US WHAT DO YOU THINK?


Answer

The manual may say December however it truly depends a great deal on your climate, maturity of the plant, and planting date. Kale is a cool season vegetable which as the name implies it is commonly grown and harvested during the winter months. Fruits and vegetables are very good at telling you when they are ready to be eaten, keep an eye out for the sings of ripeness and maturity.

Kale is delicious! Thank you for the gardening question.
