Super Duper Collards :o)


Would you believe these Collards....they don't want to die! and I don't want them too.
I don't remember what kind of Collards they were...I should have planted a whole row of them...Remember the older post where Cecil cut them down..they wee growing into seed tall as he ...and then we had some kind of beetle coming to snack on them...so it was time to take them in hand by cutting them back....which we did ....and as you can see....they are coming up again and looking as healthy (hope they stay that way).
When I see Collards , I'm thinking of Corn bread to go with it..Corn bread with all the good stuff inside of it....onions, Jalapeno pepper, corn , bacon chips< I think I'm making myself hungry...but today I'm going to surprise Cecil and make him some old fashioned "Pan Bread"...(like making biscuits , just cook them on top of the stove in a iron skillet..< now that's down home cooking :o) And I'm here Down home in North Carolina..straight from good old New Jersey < Rah! Rah! Rah!

A friendly hello to you, Virginia! Thank you for visiting my blog, and thanks to Daisy for introducing us. I noticed that we both enjoy the same books. I have read the Mitford series twice, and my favorites three times. Good reading!
