Kale is one of the most nutritious vegetables you can grow in your garden or container garden. Kale contains vitamins A, C, K and B-6 as well as potassium, calcium, iron and manganese. Kale can be eaten raw or cooked. There are a variety of ways to prepare kale such as kale chips. Kale can be added to smoothies for a nutritional boost.
