What are the pros? Color, flavor, hardiness
What are the cons? Did get some kind of bug
Wow! This was definitely a favorite in my garden this year! Very east to grow, resilient and grew well into our cold fall up here. I was pleasantly surprised at how well this kale flourished in the summer months, especially since I planted later than I had planned. Very forgiving plant! Later in the season I noticed several leaves got some kind of bug under them. I didn't use anything but water and hand picking to remove, but I never figured out what it was. Worth noting, but doesn't worry me for future planting.
It also wasn't picked on by the local bunny or the deer who ate my garden back multiple times. I can't say as much for the butter lettuce I planted next to this. Note taken: make a fence this year!
Great flavor, perfect for smoothies or cooking. Saved me quite a bit of money throughout the year, too not having to run out for "greens" when I needed some. I will definitely be keeping this seed for my 2018 planting.
