... I've received responses to every one of my emails to Melissa. The last one I sent and had responded to was a couple of months ago, I guess. I've probably emailed her 5 or 6 times in the last couple of years.

Opuntia grows wild around here. The landscaping forms are huge. All of the fruits and pads of opuntia have tufts of hair-like spines. Very irritating, like fiberglass. Handle with gloves. You can also burn off these "hairs".

Ooh, do tell. How do you burn them off? A candle, or what? Thanks for the tip!

Something like this if you are doing a bunch of them for lizards:

Being in Alabama, collards are VERY easy to get here! LOL My personal opinion is they are nasty! Smell ... Spike all the time, though Emotion: smile Kim Come see what's new! Offering much more than just fabric Emotion: smile

We planted our first collard greens this week. I love veggies but must admit that I tried collards & found them horrid. I'll stick to cabbage & spinach for the family. I can't wait until the lizards have fresh greens from our gardens. Our mustard greens & dandelions are peeking their little heads up through the soil. We had a good crop of crocus but it's still too early for the other spring bulbs this far north. We are Zone 3. It's going to get into the mid-20's tonight so I hope the collards will still germinate. snake lady

Aww, that might be because you are from up north and didn't know how to eat them! First, you have to boil them with a nice big piece of fatback, then you have to eat them with salt and pepper and a healty dose of pepper sauce (tabasco or cayenne peppers that have soaked in vinegar for at least a year). The pepper sauce helps 'to kill the taste' as my Dad would say. Serve them with a large skillet of warm cornbread slathered in butter! I like collards, but admit that I prefer turnip greens more, they are not as pungent.

Bring to boil, then simmer 2-3 hours. Add ham and onions last hour. Save and use liquid in other dishes. Greens come out less bitter and more tender.
Take my word for this, I'm a better cook than I am herper. Wanna come over for dinner?
