Walking Stick Kale

runswithscissors(MT 4/5)April 7, 2013

Just for the fun of it, I'm trying to grow some walking sticks this year. I have ten healthy plantlets growing now, about 2" high. I've read that you need about ten good plants to get one good walking stick, so I'm shooting for number 1. Have any of you tried these. Since it is a Kale, I'm thinking I can get it in the garden in a few weeks, and it will have plenty of cool weather to grow before the heat hits.

(that is if I don't bake them to death first...(smile.)

I might get lucky to just grow short stick kale here in zone 3,...if we ever get into the garden this year with several feet snow left.
