Love, hate relationship

What can you say about collards? You either hate or love collards. My wife of 26 years and I have most things in common; however, my love of collards is not one. Leafy greens, such as turnips, mustard, collards, kale and spinach are cool season crops. They should be grown in early spring and fall for maximum yields.

Kale and spinach can withstand temperatures into the upper teens. The other greens may withstand light to medium frost. As a matter of fact, some people prefer a light frost on collards before they are harvested.

Everything borrowed; something new to you

As I have admitted before, many of my "Fwd: Fwd:" e-mails get deleted, particularly the ones that are obviously derogatory. Occasionally, I read one and think: "That would be fun to share." This column is that sharing, even though I don't know the authors and can't give credit.

This one seems especially true for me; it's about friends: "Why do I have a variety of friends who are all different in character? Some of them can be considered marginal, even. How do I get on with them all? I think that each one helps to bring out ...
