Kale or no kale – that is the question!

The kale I planted seems to have disappeared!

To be fair, I’m not sure if I have ever identified many of them growing. I think a couple of plants have survived, but, like the cabbages, they seem to be delicious as they are being eaten!

Thankfully, I realised there was a potential problem and started growing more seeds at home. I plan to grow them to a decent size before bringing them to be planted out at the allotment.

I, therefore, have a couple of weeks to work out how to cover them over to stop these being eaten as well!
