Is there any vegetable that offers a better return on investment than kale? Not only is this stately green extremely nutritious and easy to use in a wide variety of dishes, it is also hardy, extremely cold tolerant and takes up almost no space in your garden bed. Frankly, that isn’t a good reason why a motivated gardener shouldn’t start growing kale.
As a member of the Brassica family, kale is closely related to broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage. However, you get more food from kale plants because the leaves are what is eaten, not the flower buds or cabbage. This means that kale is an extremely efficient crop for the space-conscious gardener. Once your plants are established, you’ll be in shock at just how easy it is to grow kale.
