Kind hearts are the garden,
kind thoughts are the roots,
kind words are the blossoms,
kind deeds are the fruit.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Last year I grew ornamental kale for the first time.
Started from seed, it was slow to take off, but when it did–oh, my what impact it had in the garden!
I planted it directly into the edges of a few of my raised beds and bordering the edge of The Pickery.
This year I will be planting it into large pots, so that I can move it around the garden. It looks stunning long into the Fall.
The little kale seedlings are emerging and I’ve given them a pep talk–hope they live up to last years crop!
