I have a question about Lacinato Kale. We had it growing last season and over the winter, it was left outside without a cover. The leaves wilted during the winter months, but the stalks? stems? are still standing. Will it grow back this growing season, or should I remove it?

Lacinato Kale can withstand temperatures as low as 20 degrees F, so it actually does well during the cold season. However, it is an annual plant and should be re-planted each year. The good news is that, since it is a cold-loving plant, you can get it into the ground 3-4 weeks before the last frost date.

Summer Bird Feeding Tips

We're often advised to plant red flowers to attract hummingbirds. But do you know why this color is so alluring to hummers? I was surprised to learn from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology that it's not because of an inherent preference for red. Turns out that other nectar sippers like bees and butterflies have an easier time finding pale colored flowers. In nature, red flowers tend to have more nectar in them because they aren't visited as often by…
