In our garden, this is the one thing that is always edible, all year round. It's a kale tree. We got it at Spiral Gardens and it bears really tasty kale. You just clip off the leaves and they grow back, fast. I like the texture of cooked kale a lot so I mostly use it as a supper vegetable, sauteed with onion, a little turkey bacon and then simmered with a little apple juice.
The chickens also like kale, so if a branch gets aphids we just toss it to them.
Yesterday I planted a lot of seeds--sweet peas and sunflowers all around the frontyard fence. I hope they all do well.
