American Flag Leek
American Flag leek was originally bred for cold overwintering weather. Perfect for winter stews, but my favorite way to eat it is baking it into breads.
Grow(Brassica oleracea var. viridis)If possible keep soil temperature over 75°F until germination, reducing air temperature to 60 °F. Prefers outdoor temps 60 °F- 70 °F.
Kale can be grown in mild winters above 32°F where hardened-off seedlings can be set out from September to February. If starting indoors, brassicas need to be transplanted before their fifth true leaf, so not to become rootbound.
