I remember cropping collards in the fall with the best ones coming after the first frost. Today collards are available year round at Wise Farms. According to my brother collards are very resilient to extreme hot and cold and therefore grow well in all four seasons. He plants a crop in early to mid-March for harvesting throughout spring and summer, and the fall/winter crop is planted in early to mid-September. So come on out to the market and get yours while the gettin' is good! Tomorrow I'll post how Mama cooks 'em.
