Kale is great!! I live on a mountain nortwest of Berry on the South Coast of NSWand my husband has been growing Kale for a few years now. It is so versatile. I cook it in stir-frys, mix it in mashed potato with a small finely chopped onion, mix it in white sauce and melted cheese on top. etc. etc. The plants last for ages and we harvest from the ouside of the plants. Maybe we are just in the right place but it grows very well and there are so many varieties my favourite is the very curly leaf variety.
