Still in the Garden


 What's left of the garden was still untouched by frost on Saturday when I took these pictures..

I went looking for greens to have for supper . . .

A few weeks ago these plants were bug- and worm- eaten, leaves reduced to green lace. I pulled off all the crummy leaves and fed them to the chickens. While we haven't had frost, it's been cool enough that the worms and bugs have mostly disappeared.


Beautiful Curly Kale . . .


Tuscan Black Kale (Nero di Toscana). . .


Red Russian Kale . . .


And good old Georgia Collards.


Nasturtium vines have climbed up into the asparagus...

 

Tender catnip for the kittehs . . .

And even a few green peppers for us!

Oh Boy! All those greens cooked with some bacon fried first in the pot then boiled. Dipping my cornbread in the pot liquor. All the meal I need. Maybe finish the pot liquor off poured into a glass.
