Day 1965 - Beet Greens, Anyone?

Greetings, Bloggy Greens Lovers!

Nobody but me eats beet greens here in the South.

Turnip greens are everywhere. Mustard greens too. Swiss Chard, sometimes. Spinach, certainly.

BUT NOT BEET GREENS. That's a Maine thing, for sure. I didn't like many vegetables growing up, but I did like greens, especially beet greens.

I tried to buy beet greens in Amish country. They looked at me like I wasn't right in the head, and said they give the beet tops to the animals!

I tried to buy beet greens at the Whole Foods Market. They don't sell them, they said they'd just cut some off the beets and GIVE me some (to make me go away).

I want some beet greens! Mom - freeze some for me that I can eat when I come to Maine in August!

You are a funny one! Don't think I've eaten beet greens...have i?? :)
Had a great day at the beach today. A long day, but good one. so ready for sleep! Will be out tomorrow trying to peddle my tutus to various shops. SO not my thing...I stink at sales. haha!
Hi Heather - Good luck peddling!

And no, I don't think you've had beet greens, you preferred green beans over just about any cooked vegetable. ;-)
Still do!!!! :)
I thought I added comments the last two days but they aren't here, so I'm testing.
