They are pretty in a vase. I do that sometimes too. I originally got the idea from a local farmer who sells floral bouquets with fresh herbs in them. They're so lovely. Enjoy your greens!


I got scallions, broccoli rabe and asparagus at the greenmarket last week! I missed Saturday, but I went Monday and Friday -- I bet the weekend array was even better, though!

Nice photos! I love to put my rosemary in a vase sometimes.

what on earth are kale and collard tops? I wish there was a CSA in Bay Ridge. *sigh* sometimes I feel like I'm living in the Midwest out in the ole Ridge.


I'd add that while I enjoyed these bitter little green tops, I liked them raw even more. While we were pondering them at the farmer's market the stall owner broke off the very tip of one of the stalks and let us try it. It was sweet, crisp and tasted slightly like fresh peas. Lovely.

I love to put my farmers' market treasures in glasses on the kitchen counter -- salad greens, herbs, veggies. Makes me feel like I'm still out in the garden!


Mmm, fresh greens. And those eggs look lovely. (Are those oozy yolks I see in your future?)


I wish our green market was actually a green market! So sad when I go and all I see are candles, smoothies, some bread and a couple of strawberry cases. I would love to lay my hands on some eggs right out of a farm!


How lovely Ann...pretty greens & wonderful eggs! With summer frying us here, the only green we will see in the next 2 -3 months will be spinach!! Popeye's magic worked with the kids when they were young, but alas...tims have changed!! I envy you!! Cheers...


Ooh, Kale and collards are some of my favorites! I can't wait for spring in Seattle...sigh...our farmers markets have been very rainy lately! :-)


Very pretty! I haven't tried the tops like that, but they look delicious! Supposedly we'll be getting lots of greens in our CSA box, so I can't wait to see what they look like in Hawaii, or the varieties we'll be getting. I hope you're well!!
