My over-wintered kale is starting to bloom. Can I eat the flower buds before they open (broc-kale-ini?)?

Absolutely! They are like broccoli rabes (or flowerettes) and can be sweeter and more tender than the leaves, especially after overwintering. Like anything else, if they are too bitter for your taste, then don't eat it.


Thanks, Maggie. Good news!
