In which I enjoy my spring green collards

Collards trying to turn into broccoli

I got my spring harvest of collards today. Just in time, as they are about to bolt into shoots of skinny broccolini style flowers. I would have gotten them a lot sooner, but the turkeys got them first. Just the same, all four plants survived. I found plenty of leaves to gather, and the greens cooked up tastily while I cooked the rest of a frugal, fridge-clearing dinner.

Have I mentioned lately how much I love my collard plants?
