Mine usually get ravaged by whiteflies & need row covers to grow organically

Kale was one of the first veggies I grew. Buying it at the supermarket now seems sinful! Home grown doesn't seem anywhere near as tough as from the store and is there ready for whenever you want it. Highly recommended and there are some wonderful recipes out there now that make it all more worth while :)
