This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

wild kale

wild kale 026 wild kale 023

These have grown really fast. I think they are pretty cold hardy, so I hope I can plant them out in a cold frame in March.

I got this mix from Territorial. They describe it as:

30 days. Gardeners who love to grow edible ornamentals will go crazy over this exciting mix. A fabulous array of Siberian kales of unique shapes and hues. Diverse leaf profiles range from delicate waves to tight frilly curls. Color shades from light greens to blue-greens to purples and reds. Up to 24 inches tall, these kales are mild and very cold tolerant. A winter salad gardener's delight
30 days! No wonder its growing so fast.

Brilliant, what lovely seedlings. We grew a couple of Kale, it was good. Never eaten it before and am hooked. Going to do loads more this year, Redbor and Fordhook Giant supposed to be good. All your seedlings look so healthy.
