Small kale, are they healthy?
Over the winter we bought two transplant kales and kept them indoors - one winterbor and one redbor. We kept them in the windowsill that gets the most sun and water it frequently. Until the last couple of weeks we had been harvesting the kale occasionally, but the leaves are not growing back very slowly if they are growing back at all. Is that normal?
The redbor seems to be a bit leggy and on the thin side but the leaves are fine and little things are budding at the joints of past-harvested leaves. I am thinking about planting it outside but am not sure if it can survive.
The winterbor is stouter but seems to have a bit of trouble. A leaf yellows and falls off about every other week and we haven't noticed any new growths coming out at past-harvested locations or at the top. Is something wrong or is the yellowing normal? Why isn't there any new growth at all?
Both plants are about 1-1.5 cm thick at the base of the stem. I have seen pictures of other people's kale and they seem to be much bigger! If anyone has any suggestions on how to make these plants happy I'd love to read them, we were hoping to get more if everything works out.
