Kale is probably the easiest crop you can grow in the Pacific Northwest. There are also many varieties and leaf shapes, colors and flavors, so this is fun crop to play around with – and success is practically assured.
I typically start between a half-dozen and a dozen kale plants in mid-February, and transplant 4 or 5-week old seedlings out in mid to late March. Like most cold hardy brassicas, kale tastes best when the weather turns chilly, so if you aren’t a major kale lover, save this one for your fall plantings.
