A Great Kale
Aron from SC wrote on October 20, 2015

I've grown this a couple of winters now. It's a great plant in that it withstands cold just fine (at least Charleston cold): I've planted it in Sept/Oct and it lasts until May. Usually worms/caterpillars are the ruin, but by then I'm nearly tired of it. The leaves are a good size and tender than most kales. So great in salad, sautes and smoothies, haven't tried it in chips since I figured out how to make those. Luckily the leaves last a long time between when they can be harvest and when they must, so a couple plants works for my wife and I harvesting about weekly.

They came through!

About 3 years ago I was volunteering at a very underfunded, underprivileged elementary school in Newark Nj. I called at least 10 seed companies to ask for a few free seeds and maybe a few booklets on how to garden for the Teachers to show the children where food really comes from. After being a Burpee customer for almost 20 years they blew me off in a NY minute, when I said "donate". Park Seed sent me seeds, gardening books and a note. I distributed everything to Teachers, Parents, students and spread the word to the School Board about the generous donation from Park Seed. From that small gesture Park Seed is our seed company. I sent a note of Thanks to the amazing lady, but I wanted to comment in this box and again say ......THANK YOU.....!
