Our winter garden.

Our winter garden is planted and now we patiently await teeny little green buds.  Those teeny little green buds will grow up to be vegetables I'm not that familiar with:  mustard greens, collard greens and swiss chard, in addition to two types of lettuce.  The only thing I know to do with greens is boil the hell out of them so I am definitely open to creative ways to cook the plethora of greens our backyard garden will soon yield.

Use bacon grease and salt and not too much water but enough and then chop them up. Your greens are going to be dirty and I never cook fresh greens anymore b/c they're gritty. I have heard (read, overheard or made-up) that you can wash them in the washing machine. Sounds kinda nasty to me.

Mama, I'm so not cooking a whole garden full of greens in bacon grease. Do you not realize that about me?

Washing dirty cloth diapers in the washing machine doesn't gross me out but washing greens in that same washer grosses me out. Ick.
