Green in the Garden

The temperatures have dropped! We have a cool front. It was actually in the 60's last night. Downright cool weather for us! The lower temperatures are giving my garden a need break and all of the greens are loving it.
Purple Hull pea blossom peeking from behind a leaf. See the battered leaves from the storm? The plants are putting out new leaves now. I'm so proud of them for surviving!!!
My cabbages have sprouted! Here is a pretty little cabbage sprout.
Heirloom curly mustard. Greens are some of the yummiest and easiest things to grow in a garden. You can find my recipe here. They make a wonderful side dish, or with a pan of cornbread, they can be the main star. My husband especially likes them with pork chops.
Here are the heirloom Georgia Collards. The more types of greens you grow the better your greens are!
Chives and Henderson Bush Lima beans. The Lima's have blossomed and are forming pods.
A wonderful surprise. I found a pumpkin on my heirloom french pumpkin vine that I thought hadn't produced! How did I miss that?

I love that plants can be so hardy and survive things like that storm. Yes, how did you miss that big old pumpkin? I love growing pumpkins.
