Cycle of Kale

Kale planted last fall is still producing but has bolted.  

One of the best leafy green vegetables that we can eat is kale, and it is amazingly easy to grow in our gardens. Not only do we love it, but when it bolts (goes to flower), the bees also love it, and when I then pull it, the goats do as well! When we plant the kale, either from seed or seedlings, we try to work on leaf or water sign days, meaning the moon is in cancer, scorpio, or pisces.

Honey bees cover kale flowers.
Letting some of your kale bolt is a good way to
help honey bees out! You also may get some seed.
