Love Kale! Can't wait to try the package of free Nero Di Toscana Kale (Dinosaur Kale) seeds that Baker Creek sent out with the order this year!  Smile

Kale is best harvested before the leaves get much more than 3 inches long , boiled for six min in already boiling salted water  drained and given a smear of butter . 

 The really strong dark almost black kales need a little bit longer  . 
 For all kales strip out the main stalk in the leaf & again cook & eat the leaf straight from the garden don't put them in the fridge overnight or leave them on the counter top for several hours or they'll go tough on you .  Put them uncut s, ubmerged in ice cold water to keep them fresh over night in the fridge . 

 If you leave it till the leaves are like elephants ears they will be just about as tough as them . 

 If any of you are lucky enough to have the Chou au D'benton kales ,  they are like eating soft silk when you only harvest the really small 1& 1/2 "  sized leaf clumps  .  Cut off any of the harder darker  woody stem bits , six min in salted boiling water , add bit of butter , serve & eat them first sunny  .

We harvest Kale when it is much larger than 3", more like 9" to 12".  It is never tough. We typically coarsely chop it and saute it with garlic, olive oil, and red chili pepper flakes. During the growing season, we have sauteed Kale 3 or 4 times a week, and never tire of it. We also make Kale Chips in the air fryer, which are delicious snacks. When I'm working in the garden, it is not unusual for me to pick a small Kale leaf and eat it fresh off the plant, though.

We grew one of those big varieties about 20 years ago. It was awful! I wasted a whole day harvesting, blanching, and freezing it. GRRRRR!

Now I only grow dwarf curly. Never bitter, never tough, never bolts, grows right through our brutal summers and strange winters. And it's beautiful, besides! I love you

I went to the local Garden Center (Pike's) looking to supplement my home grown Broccoli starts.  The cost was $3.99 per broccoli transplant.  Not per tray but per plant. No way would I pay $3.99 per Broccoli transplant.  I then went to Home Depot and the broccoli were $3.98 for 6 Broccoli transplants.  Yes they were a little smaller but big enough to plant (as soon as the rain stops again).

I can relate. I carefully transplanted, watered, and nurtured a weed for almost 3 months, until it started to bud and gave itself away. Embarassed

Your are not the only only one, CN.  Once I bought my MIL a potted flower plant, kept it in my home for a few days so decided to water it before I took it round to her.

She died about twenty years ago, and one of her daughters returned it to me as remembered that incident when I found it was a silk plant. It is still in my house looking as beautiful as ever.  I had better give it a dusting.

If the artificial look good enough to fool you, why not? Less hassle. 
Same goes for jewelry & diamonds...although my DW may disagree.
