And as an aside, I finally found the mysterious wheat berries! You'll never guess where they are in my store. With the friggin RICE and pasta! Whatever. We don't have any bulk food in bins like some of ya'll told me about. We have "packaged bulk" but no wheat berries there. I walked and walked, checked by the flour, checked everywhere except the rice aisle before I found it. They also had millet and barley. Has anyone ever tried to grow these? Are they pig-eating-worthy?

At my local store they don't tag either of those so I finally learned the code number for each. A few of the cashiers know them, but most do not.
Hum, looking at the GL calculator, it matters more than I thought if it's "endive(escarole)" or "chicory greens" because of the Ca:P ratio. I've gotten anal enough to weigh my greens now, to make sure Piggy gets the right ratio.

'Fine frizee' aka curly endive:

Nothing. You said it was free.
I've also started to learn (relearn) codes because some of the cashiers are just clueless.
The other day Elmyra and I rang up our own groceries (she enjoys that) and we were so perplexed. Parsley was nowhere on the screen. Turned out, it was listed as "Herbs, parsley". Now who goes looking for parsley under H?

This looks like the curly endive/chicory in the stores here.
It took me a long time to figure out some years ago, because many of the stores I went to had them both, but labels were often mixed up. Cashiers didn't usually know either. They do look somewhat different from season to season too, individual variations, I guess. If I send my husband for either endive or escarole, he goes by the tag on the shelf and whatever "green stuff" is nearest. So it's always a surprise. ;-)
Did Piggy enjoy whatever you brought home?
