Sorry it took so long to post....there was nothing to tell

One bunch for me and one for Cecil....(which one is the biggest :o) not too bad for the second pickings ...the first was so good I couldn't wait ...So the next day I picked twice as much and we had ball with them...Cecil bought some cornbread (to save my energy, I'm getting spoiled) and we feasted!! We didn't see the little flowers on them yet, I think they are still too young yet. ..they were tender and sooo good...Wish I could plant a whole field of them next year...wish I had a real farm with chicken's roaming around....just think of the chicken poop fertilizing the ground :o)
I'd have greens growing out of my ear ....nothing else to tell except last week the exercise was too much for the leg and I had to skip Friday...but Monday (I was good, and so was my B/S the medication is working).

Oh Ginny, I'm so glad you are getting to enjoy those greens. I bet they were about the best you've ever had. So glad to hear your blood sugar was good and that your medication is working. Good luck with your exercises too! :D

Thanks Daisy, I can't wait for the next helping to get them into the pot :o)...I never realized how much I loved fresh greens :o)Ginny

You'll have to give us a recipe one of these days. I tried collards once at a pot luck, but didn't like them. Perhaps with the right recipe?

Mmmm. . . I love them, too, but I eat them raw. Mmmmmm. How wonderful to still have things to harvest this late in the year.

Daisy,I'm enjoying every green I pick out of the garden :o) Makes me feel like a real farmer :o)

Deborah, you need some good ole fashioned Country ham to make those greens taste good..and you have to wait until the frost hits the collards ...unless you use my trick of putting them in the freezer for an hour or so :o)
Ladydi,I can eat real young buds or greens (spinach) almost raw,in a salad or quickly salute but otherwise ...I have to cook them.
