George, George!!

No No!! Don't tell me!!   This is proof positive that you must be an
and not a true Southrener at all!!!  You've got the recipe right for
cornbread, esp
with beans,etc,  but no collards!?  Blaspheme!!  I look forward to the first
frosts of
the year so as to get great collards again (because as everyone knows,
are sweeter after they get frosted on).
George, please tell me it isn't so!!

Bambi--who is enjoying the list again after sitting the death watch with my
              Grandmother until she died Saturday and was buried yesterday.
She was
              very instrumental in nurturing my love of gardening.
