Fall News

Things are sprouting up

The garden is coming along (the fence is not)
Since this photo we have put in broccoli, collard greens (anyone know what to do with those?) lettuce, spinach, peas....and something else I can't remember.

The herbs perked up and took off after being transplanted

This One and That One are wondering if we will keep our promise to them and get them some friends. We've had to round up This One a couple times as she has developed a love for chasing squirrels. Today Mom trimmed her wings and it seems to have helped.

A new BBQ pit...

...with a slightly artsy design ;o)

Bile em, jes lak cabbidge. Or steam them. Mix with beet greens, chard, spinach.... a touch of vinegar helps a bit. a bit on the bitter side, so they can be strong on their own. Classis southern food..... more on the "po fokes" end of the continuum but tasty and healthy. Easy to grow, almost like a weed.. which they likely were before someone tried eating them.
Now, that herb garden DOES look delightful..... what y'all gonna do with THEM?
