Kale 'Northern Lights'

Kale 'Northern Lights' (Brassica oleracea (Capitata) (Ornamental cabbage))

Nothing but these in the mini grow bed right now. Looking good. Grew from seed, I have never known anything so easy to grow!

these look good. Are they edible or just ornamental?

Can be eaten, but we didn't try. Just binned them when we needed the space, they were in between October and March though and the colour got better and better. Easiest thing I've ever raised from seed.
