Record-Breaking 108 Degrees Today, 1st Raised Bed Harvest, Collard Greens Recipe

Record-Breaking 108 Today-
The poor baby squirrel was so hot he konked out in our tree in the shade! I am so tired from the heat from appointments I had to run, but I'm grateful for the A/C! The chickens are getting lots of cool, wet foods, ice chips, and the mister's going, so not too bad. Tonight I'm leaving the mister on by their coop, as it won't cool down much tonite...


1st Raised Bed Harvest-
I harvested for the first time from the new raised bed we installed this spring, on top of "mr. stumpy". It's our first big batch of collard greens! I used this recipe with about a 1/2 a sinkful of greens, and cut back the oil to a couple TBL. Excellent! Realsimple.com  I've done something similar with bacon too :)

Oh, that is brutal! I hope you're getting some relief. Those collards look tender and delish - thanks for the link to the recipe!
