A Farmer never knows what the Day will bring!
The leaves were getting so large I couldn't see them growing any larger and they were truly growing "out of the box". I'm a city girl, but nature talks to you if you listen!
They were beautiful, a few worm holes here and there, but not enough to destroy them. I literally washed each leaf to make sure I didn't miss anything clinging and making sure the "dust" we applied was washed off throughly. I surprised myself with the way in which I changed my usual way of canning greens, I added some Country ham bits (tablespoon) that I was going to use for cornbread to each jar. (saw that on the Internet, and thought it a good idea, did it with 3 jars which I will label as such).
Not too shabby for a day's work! Greens grown on my own land by my own hand. Gives one a sense of satisfaction.
