A word from our team about our Seed Library
My favorite fall vegetable are Collards. The taste has a lot to do with how they are grown. They do well in soils high in organic matter, high fertility and well drained. Of course, the taste has a lot to do with how they are cooked. I like mine cooked with fat back, ham hock, salt, pepper, garlic, onion, hot sauce, vinegar, and oyster sauce. As the old southern tradition of eating pork, blakc eyed peas, and collards on New Years Day means you will be humble (pork), have a lot of coins (black eyed peas), and have a lot of green money (collards). I have been asked, "How do you know it's true?" My response is, I can't afford not to eat them and it is not worth taking the chance!! Eat more Collards and hopefully prosper!!
My favorite fall veggie is Broccoli. Broccoli is in the cabbage family and it is a rich source of Vitamins C and K. You can eat the head and stalk of the plant raw, steamed or in a casserole. My favorite is broccoli and rice casserole. Please stop by the Anderson County Library and pick up your free seed packets today.
