Winter Greens

So I'm exploring some new vegetables. I went to my fruit and vegetable guy and he said that in the winter Turnip Greens and Chard are really popular and are very tasty. They just so happened to be super cheap, too. So I got some.

Do you only eat the leaves? Thats a BIG vegetable to only eat the leaves. Turnip Greens have bunches of buds on them... Can you eat 'em? I'm looking for vegetarian preparations, but most of the recipes I'm seeing for both Chard and Turnip Greens involve bacon. Is there a reason?
