Transplanted Kale, Chinese Cabbage and Broccoli Raab

Visit My Youtube Tomato and Vegetable Garden Video Channel: Videos About Everything Vegetable Gardening

I got my transplants out into the garden finally! They were getting to large to wait out frosty nights. They are cool weather vegetables but I was hoping I wouldn't have to deal with frost.  Two night of frost possible this week but I couldn't wait. The root-balls were getting tight.

A raised bed is great to use because you can plant vegetables closer than the recommended distance. The main reason is the bed soil stays loose to a good depth. Roots can grow downward and the garden doesn't get compacted by foot traffic.
