Under the right conditions, kale can grow a second year or more. The kale in the back of this photo were transplanted as two foot high, 2nd year  "adult" Russian kales because I wanted more room in my regular SFG boxes. I wasn't sure if it would work, but so far it seems to. When I transplanted them, I removed almost all of the leaves so the plant wouldn't dry up. Since then the leaves have grown back.

I also transplanted some brussel sprouts, but they weren't as happy about the move as you can tell.

Kale as a biennial/perennial and transplant Empty Russian Kale removed after nearly 4 years

I pulled these Russian (Red) kale out of box #1 today. That's a yard stick in the picture for comparison. According to my notes, these kale were started in 2018. While they still produce leaves, the leaves are smaller and stiffer than those of new plants. And their height means that they block the last row of squares. So I'm starting over with that square.

I think it's good to remove plants that are no long robust and plant a new start. Your climate is perfect for year around gardening. Maybe too perfect, as the plants just keep growing and growing. Razz In my climate, the New Zealand spinach just keeps growing (cut) and growing (cut). It self seeds so it's not like I have to keep the old plants growing.
