Kale germinated in 48hrs – Love it!

Posted on Apr 9, 2014 | 1 comment

Nothing like seeing tiny green specks 48 hours after putting the seed in trays! This is dwarf Siberian kale from the end of March. Yes, that is quite late to be starting from seed. For our mid-May frost day, you can start kale indoors under lights in late February, early March and transplant out around April 1st. With row cover over the transplants, you could probably do all that a week or so earlier. Even though I’m late, couldn’t resist growing some of my own kale starts. Seeing sprouts 48 hours later made setting up the seed table all worthwhile!

  1. Did you grow your own seed?
    I have been having great germination with High Mowing Seeds in Vermont and Sow True Seeds in Asheville. I got tomatillos seeds from them (STS) and they popped right up and grew the biggest fruit I have ever
    seen. Vibrant is what comes to mind.
