Early this summer, June maybe, the kale I planted last fall went to seed. After the seeds ripened, I tried to pull the kale out of my raised bed. The stem broke off and so I left the bottom 4 inches in the ground and threw the rest in my compost bin. Well, one month later, I have new kale leaves growing off the stem of last years kale. Who knew!! Anyway, it was a surprise to see, another thrifty garden tip for you!

Kale Last year's Kale growing new leaves.

Yesterday, I cut the kale leaves off the stalk, added a little bit of olive oil and grilled them. They were great!
