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.

Most of the plants we buy at local markets come from this Proven Winners grower. We noticed this year that those massive beds of blooms are made up of pots of flowers. Of course they have drip irrigation with lots of plant food I am sure. In summer, if you are in this area, don't miss seeing it. You might catch a wedding or photo shoot going on, but usually it is quiet and you can sit in the swing and just look. Happy Friday to all.

These pictures are same bowls but different strawberries. My patch is about 10 X 12 I would say. No pesticides or fertilizers this year, they were not so good last year so I just lawn-mowed them down in July. They didn't even get their winter straw, because I thought they were a lost cause.
What did I know.
Happy Thursday to all my friends. I wish you strawberries too.

The garden is planted, I had a wonderful birthday and a visit from Kynda at our special host and hostess extra-ordinaires, Jeff and PJ's . Visits and cards and phone calls, it was just super. And did I say "cake", make that TWO.
The strawberries are ripe and today PJ and I are making strawberry shortcake to take to Blessed Hope . A post about strawberries is next I think. Love to all.
