Well , the spinach and lettuce has come up , the bok choy is there from
seed that fell before I harvested the pods . And today I tilled the straw
from around the potatoes (what a disappointment ...) into the ground to add
more organic matter , prepped the area up by the lettuce and planted about
100 garlic cloves . I'm debating with myself whether or not to plant some
kale - we've never tried it , might be good in salads . I need to inventory
my seed supply , see what else might be a good fall crop , I have about 3-5
rows 25 feet long that are ready to plant ... or I could just let them lie
fallow until next spring .
Two approaches: plant one of the more tender kales.
make "massaged kale" salad, in which you slice fine (chiffonade?), add
something acidic like lemon juice, a little olive oil, and knead for a
SWMBO likes it, if I do the kneading.

It depends on the cultivar. Some kales are tougher than others, some are
more bitter than others. Also for salad you should pick the tender young
I like kale, it is tough, long lasting, nutritious and often pretty to look
at, as well as being tasty.
