 I think this is only ornamental, giant red mustard, however looks purple to me.

Greens at the new Whole Foods in downtown Detroit.  Lots of WHOLEsome  food there and interesting people to watch and talk to, as everyone was very friendly!

MY FAVORITE Recipe for Wilting Greens is from Barbara Damrosch, of John Scheepers Seeds.

Fry two slices of bacon and discard the grease except for 1 Tablespoon.  Keep the pan hot and add 2 T. olive oil, 1 T. balsamic vinegar, 1 T. honey and 1/4 t. of dry mustard if you have it.  Swirl it around and pour over greens.

Mammy used just bacon grease over leaf lettuce but I think she would have liked Barbara's recipe.

Thanks everyone for visiting and commenting, it is like having old friends come by.  Happy Monday morning.

I love wilted lettuce salad and make it with bacon grease vinegar and sugar with a little water to make the consistency needed. Poured over fresh leaf lettuce it is delicious. When I had a garden years ago, I'd make it often. Now not so much. Hope you have a wonderful Monday!
