Post Apocalyptic Kale?
Good lord, this stuff grows.
The more we pick away at it, top it, or cut it off at the ankles, the more we seem to have.
If Kroger evaporated tomorrow and I had to feed myself strictly from what could be grown behind the fence here, Kale might be the savior.
I guess we were just accustomed to our winter spinach and turnip green patches, which provided generous and steady supplies of greens over the winter before last but were eventually depleted by the time spring approached. A couple of cuts and the plants were done.
This Winterbor kale just grows exponentially by comparison.
These plants were seeded last August and have actually been “well grazed” since mid December.

So here is the offer:
Friends and family, please let me know it you would like a trunk load of kale, pre-apocalyptic as it is. I will share and can use the space.
