Seed crop

Toscano kale, with its distinctive blurry yellow flowers. This is our first seed crop. We're being careful not to let the adjacent frilly kale and collards also flower, removing whole plants when we see buds forming. Kales and collards cross-breed with each other and our objective is for the seed we save to produce a Toscano kale plant, not a Toscano collard cultivar (although maybe that's not a bad idea either...)
