Collard Soup

I had been hungry for hot soup these cold days and I had no meat to speak of, so I thought I would try making fish soup.

I made a huge pot with the following:
about 30-50 collard leaves from the garden (the tight bundle being about the size of a large cantelope or two, or enough to fill a big salad bowl after being chopped up)
2 banana peppers from the garden
3 small onions, one from the garden
3 potatoes (make sure you don't peel them)
handful of iceberg lettuce
small amount of barley
about a cup of millet
soba (buckwheat) noodles

Then I was going to add a can of tuna, but after tasting what I had thus far, it was so substantial and tasty, I never did add fish. It was killer.
