Vegetables - Collard
( Originally Published Early 1900's )
The Georgia collard, extensively grown in the south for greens, is a loose-leaved variety of cabbage. The term collard is more or less loosely applied to young cabbages that have not formed heads. Seed is sown in midsummer from June to August for succession and the plants transplanted to rows of 30 inches apart and i foot apart between the plants.
When properly blanched, the collard is sweeter and more delicate than northern grown cabbage. Cultivation is practically the same as for cabbage. Blanching is done by tying the leaves up in some-what the same way as the leaves are tied over heads of cauliflower.
