Kale Renaissance?

At the end of summer, heading into Autumn the garden is looking pretty ratty. The kale plants are well and truly looking past their best. And yet there is some hope.

I was looking around for some greens for the chickens and was about to pull out this kale plant when I realised it had lots of new leaves sprouting at it’s base.

I took this as a positive sign and only clipped the top off the plant. The chooks are happy and I look forward to seeing if this plant will renew itself.
