I take a few leaves from each plant and let them carry on growing. I think the more common way is to take the head off completely, but my way keeps them harvesting all the time.

I've never harvested the entire top off of a kale plant, unless I was expecting it to die anyway (or it was "baby kale" meant to be cut only once)

Commercially they take the tops, but I suppose they only want the one crop.
