As far as the gala mache, 3 in. apart on package?, I guess that means 16 per ft. I know nothing about kale. Is it like spinach or collards?

I planted Winterbor Kale in the spring and put 4 to a square. Apparently Winterbor is a giant kale. It was too much, I'm planting 1 per square in the fall garden. But it kept on producing through July. I will adjust again in the spring if 1 is too little.

Kale is also something that keeps growing in the Philippine garden. Same thing happened. They stripped the plants thinking they were finished but didn't get the stalk pulled. 3 weeks later there was a small harvest ready. They are growing the dwarf curley leaf kale, but I took some winterbor and red winterbor seed to them early Sep.

I got the Italian Heirloom Kale Lacinato aka dinosaur kale

View this type of Kale here

By the looks of the pic' maybe I should only place one per square (dunno).

seems to me the smaller plants would yield more leaves that would be more tender....
