Oh, the wonders of kale.
Kale is pollinated by honeybees, and they absolutely love it. The plants bloom in the late summer months of their second growing year, and give a little boost to the bees at the end of the season.
Kale is full of vitamins. With more vitamin C than an orange and enough vitamin K to last you a week, it’s an easy-to-make superfood as good for you as it is for your skin.
The plant is also a great source of calcium, magnesium, iron and antioxidants. It is heart healthy to boot, with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
