Collard Greens Staked in Containers | Greens From Daddy’s Patio: LadyG & Daddy Fuss | (S.2 Ep.2)

Collard Greens staked in containers from LadyG and Daddy’s garden

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!

LOL!

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!


And now…

Watch and listen to all the antics in the video on harvesting and showing our collards staked in their containers.

Rest in Peace Uncle Leroy!

Dear World, You’re Welcome…

From Georgia!

A great BIG UP to my fellow Georgians who did the damn thang on January 5, 2021–and before!

The insurrection that occurred the next day at the United States Capitol makes Georgia’s stance a thousand times more important!

So, with that said, thank us now or thank us later…

Either way…

You’re welcome!

With love,

LadyG

NOT Breaking News: Because We Need A Freaking Break!

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of my stomach perpetually seizing in anticipation of any number of domestic and global cataclysms.

And so…

I’ve decided to offer us all some respite in the form of a video that highlights three off-beat/inspiring news stories.

Rest assured, there is absolutely NO breaking news to be found anywhere near here.

By the way, I won’t be offended if the video bores you to sleep.

Honestly, that’s my intention!

Refreshing huh?

Enjoy.

In this video, you’ll watch me prep my cornbread for the dressing.

Sorry, there’s no “stuffing” in this Georgia kitchen.

LOL!

Check out the video to see what else I’m doing.

Comment below if you have any questions.

I may upload a follow-up video to show next steps–we shall see.

Enjoy!
