Please Inform Me How To Plant Jersey Or Cow Kale

Categories: Grains and Forage Crops

Jersey kale can be planted by thin scattering of seeds in rows 2 1/2

feet apart so as to admit of cultivation, or the plants can be grown

just as cabbage plants are and set out 2 1/2 or 3 feet apart, the

squares to admit of cultivation both ways. The plant needs a good deal

more space than an ordinary cabbage, for it makes a tall free growth,

and space must be had for the growth of the plant and for going into the

patch for stripping off leaves and cultivation. The plant can be started

in the rainy season whenever the land comes into good condition. It is a

winter grower in California valleys.
