I'm trying out walking stick kale this year. Part of my idea was that it might become a trellis for squash plants. Little disappointed that I'll have to wait two years to get the 20 foot high kale.

Here's a "regular" (Italian, Dinosaur) two year old kale that I've applied some amateur wood workmanship to. The photo angle makes it look like a twig at the bottom, but it's not:

Now I wish I had kept the other long kales for working into sticks.

The walking stick kale is outside the box and along the fence. The arch over the SFG is four feet high. So at least some of the kale is four foot high. As you can see, it's a bit attacked by looper caterpillars. I'm trying some BT, but there are a lot of leaves!

Apparently it will dry hard. There used to be a small walking stick industry on the Island of Jersey. So feed the livestock with the leaves and then sell sticks to visitors. Thanks to sidewalks, smooth roads, and automobiles there isn't such a demand for walking sticks these days.

My Kale has long since escaped it's container and is headed for parts unknown. It is sprawled over a bare patch of garden, so I let it "free-range". I don't have Loopers, but the ground squirrels are heavily harvesting the leaves, so the plant resembles a palm tree plantation. I'm worried that those pests will start to invade my raised beds and decimate my summer crop. I set out a squirrel trap in the field where they have mounds, and something/someone has taken off with the trap Evil or Very Mad

One of the kales is now above the fence line, so at least six feet high. Apparently I will have to let it grow 2 years if I want that exotic 20 foot kale ...
