While some of our GT friends are shoveling snow or and enduring frigid temps…. thought I’d bring you a bit of sunshine from Florida. Pam has many types of veggies. Lots of Collards, and other greens, such as spinach, swiss chard, lettuce, red cabbage . I know that’s not green but… Plus she’s also growing broccoli and onions and several herbs.

Those vegetables looks so nice, Harold, I can almost taste them from the photos! Remind Pam that she is a true gardening wizard and enjoy those fresh greens for me.

Just what I needed, some Florida sunshine! Those greens look yummy!
Supposed to snow again tonight, so all I can do is wish for spring.

Glad you all enjoyed the photos. Picked and made some collard greens last night. That recipe I how linked is wonderful for collards and other leaf veggies.

Ms Debbie, you know you Canadian kids are going to have another 4 month of winter before spring arrives!

Robin – Pam has come a long way. She keeps trying other things and is learning what works and what does not. Then she goes to our neighbor only to find EVERYTHING works for her! Then Pam gets a little disappointed.

Bon – can’t say I’ve ever been sick from store bought stuff, but know of what you refer to. Regardless, the taste of home grown and store bought makes all the difference.

And Miss Liana… as I recall, you chose to leave Florida for some knight in shining armor in Colorado… right??? My brother lives in the Superior area and just loves it.

oh Harold—you are SO cruel!!!! that is just plain evil, to crush my visions of fast-approaching spring with a nasty taunting of 4 more months of winter. Evil I say… evil!

I’m with you Debbie – so cruel. We’re relegated to “fence mending” and drooling over seed catalogs and they get to actually plant and grow things. I understand those in the southern hemisphere, but this is even our own continent!
