I've been doing some research lately on what I can plant now that will grow in the fall weather. One crop that seems to do well in cooler weather, and that I have actually been consuming a lot of lately, is kale.
I planted these seeds a few weeks ago and they are just starting to resemble kale. I use it primarily in juice but it's apparently really good baked into chips as well. Kale is not expensive to buy in the store... but at $.99/pound, when I can get a whole packet of seeds for $1.29... it will save money over time. And, it is always nice to have things you use frequently literally right outside your back door. So far, so good with this one. I read that it actually tastes best after a frost... which means I could perhaps safely put in some more seeds now.
