Just a quick video about what’s been going on in the crazy world of LadyG and all the things that I’ve been up to since May.
In this video, I decided to harvest some collard greens from our garden. Daddy starts fussing at me for not cutting the collards closer to the stalk.
He swears that I “left enough food on the plant for a baby.”
After the harvest, the collards, which grow upward like a little tree, had to be staked in order to keep them growing straight–we don’t want them to lean and break.
At any rate, I am including my own “closed caption” in the video because Daddy talks low and he has a very deep Southeast Alabama accent; hell, he makes me sound like I’m from New York–and that takes some doing!
***Caveat: I didn’t caption everything he said—I want to tune your ear to our beautiful dialect!
Good luck with that!
By the way, don’t let the accent fool you, my Dad tested high enough on the ASVAB (or whatever the equivalent was at that time) to go to Air Force flight school–and he was only 17!
Sadly, a physical injury kept him out.
That said, we might talk slow but we ain’t no dummies!
Anyway, at one point in the video, you’ll hear me cuss–but don’t worry, Daddy had walked off for a second to get the water hose–he couldn’t hear me.
That was more of an inside joke between me and my son who was acting as my camera man. LOL!
Watch and listen to all the antics in the video on harvesting and showing our collards staked in their containers.
Today, I am in a random mood so I decided to cull together a few cooking tips along with some pictures from my garden and a quick talk about spirit.
Peep below to get the goods!
Be warned, there’s a bit of salty talk (cussing) in this video. So if you have delicate ears or you are under a certain age–chile, please move on and know that LadyG loves you anyway.
It’s that time of year!
