Well down here in Terrible Hole IN the produce selection, particularlly for greens, is getting down right ugly. I can still get the greens but they are limp and sad looking which leads me to wonder how much of the nutritional value has been lost.
I am wondering what you guys tend to use more of when greens are limp and green beans are soft.
ditto what Dom said. Greens are getting downright nasty looking here too, and the size has shrunk to half what they were in the summer. (both the size of the leaves AND the size of the bunch) I found some canned collard greens that I thought I'd use for emergencies, but Thrasher refused them. I bought greens day before yesterday. I spent 10 minutes picking thru trying to find some that looked halfway edible. I finally decided on 2 bunches of collard, 2 bunches of turnip greens, and a freakin stalk of romaine lettuce to make it all go further. I have been feeding lots of sweet potato and squash. Good luck! It won't be much longer till we have some nice fresh food for them!!

Well I anticipated the lack of selection and stocked up on winter veggies last fall. Little did I know that my pantry was not insulated. Went to cut up a big butternut when I found that it was frozen solid 12 pounds of squash gone, sweet potatoes and others were fine though. Weird pantry.
The green beans are soft and soggy down here, but snap peas are not available.
Collards are getting better now but still lack in size.
