Growing Collard Greens

I planted Collard Green seeds last year in early Fall. The plants came up and I did not cut them down as usual. They survived the winter and now have grown to about five feet tall with yellow flowers on top. What should I do? Should I cut the flowers to promote leaf growth? Will cutting the flowers kill the plants?

Hardiness Zone: 7a

You can cut the flowers off. It will not hurt the collards. They will keep growing, enjoy, good luck.

I think that your collard greens will be tougher than usual.
