We have had snow/frost already but the Kale/Collard Greens/Bok Choy are still doing great...they are cool weather plants...but with the rain/cold, I'm not!:rofl: My fingers are cold picking them....So within the next week, I'm going to be "pulling" the plants and putting them into buckets of water to keep them a little longer in the house...to finish off the leaves...The birds are loving them and it is saving money buying GREENS right now!!!!:hug8:

The floods made pay to most of our gardens in the past few days Billiefaye, it is as you say that time of year. Hope you manage to save a lot of your greens it does help to have them on the menu as long as possible for the birds of course! Not only is it cheaper but the foodstuffs are natural and pest control spray free. :heart:

That is so cool! I grew tomatoes, jalapenos, and eggplant this year. I'd like to try growing some kind of leafy green next year.
