Kale is believed to be more similar to the original wild cabbage ancestor than more refined brassicas like cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. It hails from the eastern Mediterranean, as well as Asia Minor. The ancient Romans were responsible for dispersing kale and collards to Europe where they were quickly embraced as a cold-loving crop perfectly suited to the Northern European climate.

Most people would choose something sweet over something green any day of the week. But if you’re looking to improve your diet or perhaps drop a few pounds, the more cruciferous vegetables you eat, the better. And if you’ve yet to discover kale, it’s time to give this green, leafy superfood a try — not only because of its low calories but also because of the health benefits you’ll receive.

USES: Many culinary uses

Kale is a perfect beginner gardener’s crop, and it requires very little care to thrive. Kale can tolerate an impressive amount of cool weather. In mild climates, it can be grown year-round, perhaps with a lull in the punishing heat of summer. In cooler climates, kale is considered one of the best crops for season extension. With a bit of protection, it can be grown late into the fall. PESTS/SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS

In some areas, cabbage worms will wreak havoc on all cabbage relatives. Try a clove of homemade garlic and hot pepper spray to discourage these pests from munching your plants.
