They sound like parsnips, they also get sweeter with frost.

Collards are related to cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts (cole crops) and get sweeter when touched by a frost. They get bitter in the heat of summer, I think.

I love my greens cooked with bacon!

I've only eaten collard greens once, they are not a common vegetable here in Australia. I loved them, I cooked them with bacon.

I love broccoli greens too!

For those of you who find collards, mustard or turnip greens to be bitter, try this: Cover the greens with water and bring to a boil. Pour off the first water and then add a litte fresh water to the pot and continue to cook the greens. Most of the bitterness will have gone down the drain.

Lettuces...esp. romaines but they're all good.

Have you tried snow pea shoots? Plant a bunch extra and then eat the green shoots from the extras. The shoots taste like sweet peas!
And young broccoli leaves are delish. Very dark green, taste like sweet-nonbitter collards, sort of.

I love 'em all! My granddad used to pick wild mustard greens near the river bank and cook them up with bacon or ham hocks. I love collards, kale, turnip greens, spinach, cabbage--all of them!

My DIL grew 4 varieties of kale a couple of years ago and when she thought they were done, I convinced her to leave them in the garden and see how they did. They continued to produce leaves on gnarly, woody stumps all through the winter. They were tired of it, so I picked about half a laundry basket full and canned it with a chunk of ham in each jar. It was great to be able to pop open a jar of mixed greens (collards and kale) every once in a while.

I always have a pot of mixed lettuce growing so I can cut and grow so to speak. When they start to get manky looking I buy another punnet and repot, that way I always have some lettuce to pick

The veggie gardens here at the moment are growing great guns. I've picked a pile of sugar snap peas, I love snacking on them and I have enough to share with the general store owner as well. We have tomatoes growing on our plants so it won't be long until I'm eating home grown tommies.

My dad's growing romaine lettuce in his garden right now. I brought a big bag back with me at Christmas and I need to eat it up before it wilts. He was disappointed that it hadn't grown very large, but I think that made them more tender.

They aren't leafy greens, but someone posted earlier about Brussels sprouts. I love those little cabbage-y things, especially roasted until they are a little crunchy. And I agree that cauliflower looks like tiny brains (I too watch too much 'Walking Dead', although I've been on a 'Fringe' marathon this holiday--I bought all five seasons right after Thanksgiving--and there are a few brain references on that show, too!). I have a friend who used to fix broccoli and cheese sauce and call it 'cheese and trees'.

What I'm talking about is similar to wild chicory here's a picture of it

Young stinging nettles can be cooked like this as well.

I cook a delicious, tender local weed called lamb's quarters that is also sometimes called wild spinach. I wonder if that's the same. It's crazy yummy.

I love spinach, especially in salad but my favourite cooked green is swiss chard, esp. the rhubarb chard.

I believe absolutely in my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
My personal motto is that a day without learning something new or finding something to laugh about or be grateful for is 24 hours wasted.

I have to admit Kale is way too "irony" for me. I can't cook very dark green leaves as my brother takes Warfarin and the vitamin K in Kale and Cavolo Nero is way too high.

I tried kale, just couldn't get to like it. I grew mustard greens one year and they were ok but I planted too many and had way more than I could use fresh. So I froze them like spinach and was able to use them up gradually.

I have recently fallen in love with kale. If you like crunchy snacks you can put them in the oven at about 250 with a little sea salt and a sprits of olive oil until they crisp up, makes great kale chips.

Our tastes change, too, over time. I used to hate bell peppers and now I regularly add them to my cooking or on my sub when I go to Subway. I still can't stand them on pizza but they are good everywhere else.

I've never eaten fennel (as far as I know), but I might not care for it because I don't like licorice and doesn't it have that type of taste? Maybe I should try it, though. I like to try almost every food at least once, because it's not fair to say I don't like it if I haven't tried it. Maybe I would like it!

I have a vigorous patch of turnips growing in the garden right now, so I expect I'll be eating some turnip greens when they are ready. I love the tops and the bottoms, in fact I love all vegetables except fennel. I bought myself a bulb of fennel yesterday so I'm going to find a recipe that sounds good and try it again.

I have a green salad almost every day and romaine is the green I use.

I grew up on turnip greens (and/or collards) and love 'em. Cook 'em down and sprinkle a little white vinegar on the bowlful. I never cared for the 'pot likker' (juice) though. I don't like turnip roots, either. (Can you tell I was raised in the deep south, LOL!) I've had mustard greens, but they can be too strong and bitter for me.

That is good to know. I hadn't bothered to do the translation but I like it, even if it is kind of weird to see it on pizza. I might grow some this year with the leaf lettuces.

I like raw spinach, don't really care for cooked. I like cabbage (but not coleslaw). Lettuce is OK but I am not a big salad person; I prefer it on sandwiches.

Here in France they sometimes put "rocquet" on the pizza which is some sort of lettuce / field green. Sometimes it is also spelled "rocket" but that may be an attempt at translation.

Swiss Chard, or Silver Beet as we call it here.

I'll eat anything green even Beetroot leaves and Turnip leaves. I can also be seen picking the wild chicory in the grass for cooking

We can't have too much here as my brother is on Warfarin and the greens are high in Vitamin K, but a couple of times a week is fine for him as long as he is consistant

i love spinach. put it in everything. if you chop it up fine and add it to sauces and such, you'd get your vities and probably wouldn't notice it. emoticon
also, i heard that spinach is one of those veggies that you get more nutrients from when it's cooked a bit.

I would have to say my favorite right now is leaf lettuce. I do want to try fresh spinach in salad this year since I am going to grow it.

*sigh* Spinach... the power food.

Romaine. Broccoli, kale, and cabbage.

Collards were popular back in Kentucky, but I didn't eat them often.

The beautiful Prettysundress had me plant spinach this year. She eats it a ton.. even putting it in her smoothies. Me? I just can't get past the taste. Doesn't matter how she tries to hide the stuff in otherwise good food, my wife just can't get me to eat it.
I know I need more leafy greens tho. What is your favorite?
