Harvesting the kale

We have been harvesting the kale for a little while now but now that we have had a frost, kale is sweeter.  We have had a long time to wait for it this year for the first frost as it has been the mildest December since records began. The great thing about harvesting the kale is that if you avoid picking the terminal bud, the kale will keep on growing.
