For best starts, begin indoors 3-4 weeks before final spring frost or 6-8 before the first autumn frost. Plant 3-4 kale seeds 1\/4” deep per cell and 3-4” apart in the garden in nitrogen-rich, organic, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-7.5. Organic Vates kale seeds germinate in 3-10 days, thinning out best starts to 1 plant per pot or every 12-18” in the garden as true leaves establish. Kale benefits from fertilizer every 4 weeks. Extended summer heat will cause plants to bolt and become bitter.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eOrganic Vates Blue Scotch Curled Kale seeds can be grown in all grow zones, with full or partial sun. Directly sow the seeds one fourth of an inch deep in moist, rich soil, with a pH level between 6.5 and 6.8. Space the seeds 18-24\" apart, with two feet between rows. While growing, the soil must be kept moist, but care must be taken to not over water the plants. The outer leaves can be harvested sixty days after sowing. Continuous harvesting is possible if the bud is kept intact.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eOrganic Vates Blue Scotch Curled Kale in the Vegetable Garden\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eKale has recently become one of the most popular vegetables both in and out of the garden. Whether because of unparalleled health benefits, ease of growing, or showy decorative color, there is almost no reason not to have a place for kale in the garden box. Kale is one of the most hardy Brassicas, boasting a tolerance to both heat and cold extremes and even overwintering in moderate climates. Organic kale is more diverse than you think, available in a variety of unique colors, shapes, sizes, and textures.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eOrganic Vates Blue Scotch Curled Kale (\u003cem\u003eBrassica oleracea var. acephala\u003c\/em\u003e) is a highly nutritious plant, and part of the cabbage family. It’s more compact than other kale varieties. It will over winter in most zones, but can be planted in in the spring or the fall. Frost actually improves the flavor as kale prefers a cooler environment. Water well during hotter months.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eKale is versatile, and can be made into crunchy kale chips, added to soups and stews, cooked by itself, and is a delicious addition to salads. Believe it or not, the bitter flavor is lessened when the leaves are gently massaged just before eating or adding to recipes.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eHarvesting Organic Vates Blue Scotch Curled Kale\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMost kale is ready to begin harvesting about 60 days from sowing. Kale is a “cut and come again” crop and continuously harvesting younger, outer leaves will encourage growth. Carefully cut back any yellowing leaves that may appear at the base. In warm enough climates, kale can produce over winter but, in colder regions, lay a tarp or row cover to further a winter harvest. Kale can be continually harvested for a few weeks if outer leaves are harvested and the center bud is left intact.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eAbout Organic Vates Blue Scotch Curled Kale Seeds\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eOrganic Vates Blue Scotch Curled Kale is a high yielding variety high in nutrients.
