Tasty Turnip Greens from the Health To You Stand!
Chewy Collard Greens from Conrad Produce Market Stand!
Spicy Jalapeno Peppers!
Delicious fall greens are plentiful now at the Farmer's Market. Today's selection included turnip greens, collard greens and jalapeno peppers. Note the bug holes in the turnip and collard greens. When checking, the farmers confirmed that these greens have not been sprayed. They were worried that no one would buy them with the bug holes but I reassured them that the birds love bug holes as it is an easy place to start munching!
Today, I feed all birds the turnip greens, tomorrow it will be collard greens and then Monday will be jalapeno peppers. All of which are relished by my birds! Even the spicy peppers are loved especially for the seeds (split them in half or quarters to expose the seeds) because birds do not taste the heat! That is why wild bird mixes that are meant to repel squirrels contain hot chilies!
Once show training begins, I stop feeding greens but for now it is still time to continue to enjoy nature's bounty!
