From my last post about my Dad's greens in his garden, I am happy to inform you that the dark green leaves ARE the collards, and the lighter greens are the turnip greens. I will see my Dad in a few hours for our family's Thanksgiving get-together but I spoke with him last night and he told me (for sure) which was which! Funny isn't it, how we can't think very well when we are tired...I had no idea what to type about those greens in my post, but the next morning, I felt certain that I knew the identity of the greens!
Now, you know that he will have a "mess" of collards today and does anyone else call them that? Or is it just my family and other Southerners? I typed a "mess" of greens and read someone who thought only Jethro Bodine said that on "The Beverly Hillbillies". Do you remember that show? Oh my, we loved it as kids, and we certainly loved the song at the beginning. Sing along with it if you want to! Do you know it by heart? You know I do!
Hope everyone in the USA has a happy Thanksgiving day. And if you are reading this in another country, have a happy Thursday and wish us well!
