The collards grow just about anywhere in any soil as long as they get a little food, water, and sunshine. The more you pick, the more you get. If you sow the seeds, they will take about 10 days to germinate and 120 - 150 days to mature. Eat the collards finely chopped in salads, if you prefer, but otherwise cook until tender and use seasoned meat to add flavor to the collards. I always use pickles and its juice.

I also like to mix in a bit of turnip greens with the kale and mustards. They cook quickly. If you sow turnip seeds, they will take 7 days to germinate and 45 - 60 days to mature.
These leafy green vegetables are loaded with vitamins and antioxidants and they will keep you regular. They are easy to grow, cook, freeze, and store.
I usually let the mustard greens go to seed in the garden because they produce yellow flowers that attract bees and butterflies.
