It's now the period of the year known as the 'hungry gap', hence a variety of kale known by the same name. Any type will do: This is Dwarf Green Curled and a packet of 400 seeds cost 25p. Even better, it grows back when you harvest it, as long as you leave a few leaves on. There's been enough to eat several times a week and made trips to the allotment worthwhile.
