Kale Haircut

The kale I planted early this spring is still hanging on, but there was a point where we were out of town in July and the cabbageworm party got a little out of control. The leaves were all so damaged, that I went ahead and cut almost all of them off, knowing that the plants would sprout new leaves. So far, so good! Here’s a photo of the plant sprouting new leaves from a week or so ago.

I need to stay on top of it though. Here’s a picture from today. Time to hand pick some more worms!
