    When should I start growing my kale?

    I live in Redlands,Ca between Loma Linda and Mentone.So Im wondering when I should start growing my kale seeds.Im going to grow them inside to get going.So when should I start growing?Also would it be better if I grew them in a garden box with potting soil and compost or just put them in the ground?Would there be a difference?

    The vegetable kale is useful as a winter crop, when all else may not withstand low temperatures. I believe 'Tuscany Black' will give a good crop, as I have used this for one season and gathered the seed from it as well. A heavy cropper, though very susceptible to insect and birds, so cover well with fine netting or you'll only have stumps.
    Hope this is useful and good luck.
