Kale: Russian Red or Ragged Jack

Begin harvest with the largest plants, cutting them off at ground level. 

Or -- harvest the tender inner leaves until very cold weather shuts the plants down.

Approximate Harvest Dates:
May 1, 2011

Will Plant a Fall Crop.

Preserving Notes: Kale and collards can be left in the Garden long after the first fall frost. Harvest as needed until the foliage finally succumbs to cold weather. Wind protection will prolong its usefulness.

Freeze.
