Over the past weekend, I took a stroll through the Discovery Garden located near the AgriLife Extension Office in Carbide Park. I experienced a moment of déjà vu as I approached a vegetable bed maintained by a Master Gardener. The bed contained a bountiful crop of healthy “Florida Broadleaf” mustard greens.
Can any Southern garden truly be Southern garden without greens planted in the fall garden? If you are from the South, your mother and/or grandmother probably cooked them up with a bit of smoked meat or bacon. My parents always had a fall vegetable garden when I was a young boy growing up on a farm in Virginia. Greens were a tasty and extremely nutritious staple at our Sunday dinners when I was kid.
