I am so glad that KALE is the first main event for 2015 SICSA. Kale or borecole is a vegetable with green and/or purple leaves. The leaves from the central base do not form a head. It is considered to be closer to wild cabbage than most domesticated forms of vegetables.

June 3, 2013 update

Hi Folks, Well we started out too dry and too cold and now we’ve had too wet and too hot. So in just the first two months of the growing season we’ve covered all the bases. Someone asked me a few weeks back if I thought it would continue to be dry and I replied that I reckoned it would remain very dry until it began to rain too much( I didn’t actually say “reckoned” that’s just literary embellishment). I didn’t expect, nor wish to be proven correct so soon. But it seems that extremes are the new normal and we’re just going to have to cope and adapt.
