More Good Stuff :o)

Do I have to remind anyone that I love greens (especially with some hot buttered cornbread)? I think the answer for those that know me...No
I will remind you that every woman has a bag of tricks to use when she wants something that the mate cares less about  LOL :o) Well, I used one of those tricks and got that second box that I wanted and I planted some Collards in it and also some Basil that I bought for a dollar and kept in a glass near the window and they rooted like crazy so I added them to the new box , since the ones in the first box didn't do much (I think it was the soil I bought from one of those dirt places (it was lousy) anyway I got some new Soil in the bags from Lowe's and it seems everything just took off! The new box was planted almost three weeks and I think it's doing great
Greens jumping out of the box :o)

Daisy, Not yet! I'm hoping I can wait for the frost to bite them, that's when they really are good :o) One of the neighbors has already put in a claim..so you know they look better in person...Ginny

Nothing better than greens and cornbread; especially when you grow those greens yourself. You're so right about waiting til a frost to crop those collards. Love your blog! I'm definitely following it.

Hi Ginny,
I'm a country girl who love greens, too! I don't have a place to grow them but I sure do like to eat them!!!

Dorothy, you just need a small box like I did,(in the backyard) I'm not counting my "Side Garden" :o) I'm trying to use as much of the land as I can ..remember it's only a "Almost an Acre Farm" :o) and it's on a slight hill...(better than nothing). Ginny

The Gingerbread House said...

Ladydi, it's a good thing they are because I sure like eating them :o)

You are so right about the frost hitting the greens making them sweeter. Those are really nice too! I love almost any type of greens.
