Ginny and the last of the Collards :o)
Is this "Tobacco Road" or not :o) And is this a "Country Girl" or a "City Chick" :o) Boy! if my friends could see me now :o) Don't I look good? or are you looking at my Collards?
When I was gleaning the Mixed greens yesterday I saw the Collards needed to be gathered and In a hurry before the warm weather bugs came ...Well, by this morning they had started to whittle at them ..so tired or not I had to get my butt in gear... Here they are being washed and cut up outside saving my kitchen...
Just in case you all hadn't noticed, I'm wearing a special Apron that I always feel "Smart" in :o) it's one that was made for me by "Ladydi" she loves doing a lot of quilting and sewing and does beautiful work , (by the way my Apron is reversible :o). It seems when I wear it, I do a good job and don't get too tired, maybe because I think I look cute in it. :o)
Also take a look at the other neighbors "crappy" fence. They moved in , put up a fence and moved out (good riddens, they were slack). since then there has been 3 "renters" now the Bank owns it...The other neighbors put shellac on their fence and it looks better. You can see the grass is just beginning to turn green and filling in..the Ornamental Pear trees are in bloom, (wish we had thought to plant pecan trees instead).
UPDATE: which sounds like more 6 1/2 lbs or 6 1/2 quarts well , that's what I ended up with :o)
