The garden is looking pretty spars for the most part, but not my collards. My Collards are huge, look great and taste great.
I wish I had the foresight to grown my whole green in Collards.
There is a garden concept to extend the Harvest. This does not mean extending the growing season.
To extend the harvest in places like Michigan that means growing winter hearty crops in late summer and early fall like broccoli, cabbage, mustard, kale and collards.
While the plants will slow or stop growing at this point, they stay tasty and fresh into winter. Even with snow on top, these veggies keep going and can be harvested long after the garden is usually packed up for the year.
