Just had to take a look at the side garden and see how the greens have been developing since I've been stuck in with a stomach virus for the last week or more!!
Man O Man what another surprise from Mother nature! The greens really took off! So much so I was able to share with a neighbor who was so kind to us on Thanksgiving!
I do love greens and so do my children and their children..I love bitter greens and had to Special order them from "Johnny's Catalog" (Broccoli Ra be) last year...We both had illness and couldn't do a thing about planting them...hopefully we can make up this year..so far pretty good...I feel I should explain those flowers for those who know nothing about these greens...they are bitter...and the flowers I cook too! they help to make it more bitter and delicious to us..They are known as an Italian green, I give them a notch up cooked with my country ham and served with cornbread :o) I love that I have a row of them as long as the house :o)...Wonder where I'll put my collards hmm!Maybe in a flower bed in the front yard, heehaw! I'll tell people it's a Special imported plant from Africa!!I'm feeling like a little devil, got a little energy from a vitamin this morning :o)
