This morning I braved the -15C temp and harvested kale from our Square Foot Garden. Used it in a green smoothie.

Hi trolley driver, Is there a temperature below which Kale won't grow?

I think it just goes dormant in really cold weather rather than really "growing" (i..e, doubt it will put on new leaves). 

The following article says Vates Kale can survive down to -18C (0F) although some leaves may be damaged.

I went to the garden and harvested kale for a green smoothie.  Also, there is evidence that rabbits we're busy running around in the snow overnight.

trolleydriver, thanks for the link to some eye opening information. Previous information had 20F as the lowest temperature but as the link states the temperatures may vary depending upon region. Now I have to find out if plants are affected by wind chill. Being forever curious one answered question usually give two more questions.

On the list of things to do:


  1. Go through my notes and photos and summarize the good, the bad and the ugly for 2018.
  2. Purchase supplies to get my Aerogarden going.
  3. Start some indoor microgreens.
  4. Check seed sources and exchanges for things I want to grow in 2019.
  5. Cleanup my Winter Sowing (WS) containers that are still dirty from the WS at the beginning of this year. Photos of the containers and lids shown below.

Looks like I am the only one that posts in this thread. Maybe you can post hits and misses for Ontario?
