The End is Here…for fresh homegrown greens
21 November 2012 – final harvest of greens.
These yummy collards will be featured in tomorrows menu tossed with toasted garlic and pecans!
I will use the outer leaves of the tat soi for steamed greens, but the tender inner leaves I’ll add to the salad greens which are in short supply
Slim pickin’ in the lettuce row
The season of growing and picking has really come to a close today, in spite of the unusually warm and sunny weather. With the addition of row covers or cold frames we could extend the season, and we have done so in past years–not this year. In some ways it is a welcome relief, although moving into the place of buying greens is always sketchy as I’ve already seen one recall of boxed salad greens. Thankfully there are a lot of wonderful greens still in the freezer.
Wishing you all a wonderful day of giving thanks.
