What variety of collards the only ones I like are champion.

I have planted only yellow cabbage collards this year. This is the first year that I have planted only from seed instead of buying those high dollar transplants. I would have planted some Georgia collards too if I would have had time.


I plant the plants because the winter garden period is too short to start from seeds.

I usually start planting my collard seeds in July right after I have chopped down the sweet corn and gave it to the cows. I planted Red Ripper peas, White Acre peas, and collards the last Saturday in July and the peas are about to make now.

I wish that I had some good turnip growing ground because they make a good late fall stockpile for the cows.

Hey Sky, about time you started a Garden 2017 thread isn't it? Unless I missed it. Had a record high of 65 today and I got started on mine. I'm sure winter isn't over but it sure felt nice today. Coveralls on Monday and shorts today.
