Not So Speechless Sunday: Kale Surprise In Santa Barbara!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

Here is a example of a kale everyone can love.  The photo above is of ornamental kale that looks like roses.  Ornamental kale can be grown in zones 2-11.  They do well in containers also.

They are perfect for winter gardens and survive up to 5 degrees F. They continue to flower into late Spring. In warmer zones, they should be planted in light shade. Keep them well watered, and they can grow up to two feet high.

 

Happy Sunday!

Nina Hollander we have tried kale in salads, in smoothies and just did not like it.  In smoothies we would have to mask their flavor with apples or pineapple spears.  This is not a vegetable we like!  A

James Dray There is a USDA Zone map.  It is the set standard for growers to figure out which plants do well in which zones. You can enter your zip code in the map and find your zone.  A

Peter Mohylsky They are probably a few months old, it depends whether you start with seeds in July, or start with little plants and plant them in September.  And we wish you a fabulous 2017.  A

Hi Alexandra and Ron... just the look of kale never appealed to me. I'm glad to hear that I wasn't totally insane to avoid it!

Good morning, Alexandra and Ron --- the ornamental kale in your photo looks terrific and you're right about its use in container gardening which I have seen enhance quite a few patios.

Well Alexandra, I think you ans Nina Hollander are way off base. I "eat" kale in my mixed salads, but I don't eat it alone. It is bitter. But it lends a great contrast to sweeter things like cucumbers in salads.

BTW your pictures are always great. I would not have thought that this was kale because it looks so different.

Who knew Kale could be so pretty.  I doubt that it would survive the cold winters here but I know it would do well in the growing season.

The winter kale we get in Oklahoma City looks nothing like this and also has a short life span in our climate.

This is really cool. I have to mimic what others have said. I never knew about this.  I am going to look for some to plant and add color for the winter.  Thanks for sharing this!

Ron and Alexandra- we've been buying Lacinato kale and love it!  But who wouldn't love the ornamental kale like what you've shown in the photos.

Gosh, that's so gorgeous. Thanks for the share. I do love to eat kale, but it has to be very young and tender.
