2nd year Kale

Asked May 14, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

I left the stalks of last years kale in the garden and they are sprouting leaves again at the bottom 2 inches of stalk. Should I cut the top of the 2 foot tall stalk off or just leave it and harvest from the bottom?

Thanks for your question.

You must have some micro-climate!

Let it go, unless the stalk is weak and wrinkled. Prune it down if the stalk does not look healthy.
