Since kale thrives in cool weather and sweetens with frost, it grows best as a fall crop. For an earlier crop in areas with a cool summer, sow the seeds in early spring; plant three seeds in a cluster, 1/2″ deep and 16-18″ apart in rows 2-3′ apart. Thin the clusters to the strongest plant when the seedlings emerge. Kale appreciate very rich, moist soil that drains well, since they taste best when allowed to grow quickly. For a fall crop, plant the seeds in the same way about three months before the first expected frost. For companion planting benefits, plant kale with cabbage or potatoes.
