Market Stuff for July 27.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow.

I have these piel de sapo melons – sweet, white flesh. Tomatoes, nice big Carola baking potatoes and Red Thumb fingerlings, loads  of cucumbers; zephyr squash, lemon squash, onions, hard red winter wheat.

This is my favorite refrigerator pickles recipe – no cooking! And the Carola potatoes make the BEST potato salad; I don’t care for mine to be drowned in mayo. This Simple French Style Potato Salad is similar to what I make, and I love to add chopped jalepenos and whatever other peppers I have and loads of red onion.

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished black Angus beef in these cuts:

filet, ribeye, sirloin steaks, flat iron, flap steak, philly steak, ground beef, stew beef, short ribs, cube steak, osso buccco, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, soup bones.

Ground beef special this weekend – Buy 5 lbs, get 1 lb free and ***short ribs 30% off!****

Bulk pricing on our beef: quarters, halves and wholes – $3.50 lb hang weight plus the cost of processing (.85/lb), and almost half-quarters – not quite 1/8 of a cow (60 lbs) for $466. This is a great savings over the regular price you pay per piece, but quarters, halves and wholes are still the best deal.

Shane said we have 3 or 4 market size steers left. Someone has ordered a half, and we will be taking another one for processing soon. I think we’ll be saving another one of those for us to have in our freezer for next year because he sold all the calves so there is nothing left here for us to grow out. If you’re thinking about getting a bulk order in before we run out, let me know.

My sweet Pappy lamb had to be put down this week. His body got old way before his spirit was ready to go.  <3 <3 <3

We had so many fun times! He was the best lamb EVER.

I’ll see you tomorrow…

I had a great weekend off last week – I put about 10 quarts of tomatoes in the freezer and made a tomato pie. So good. It was hard to save some for Shane. Then we went to the beach!

See you tomorrow 🙂

No market for me this week.

See you next week!

I knocked one of these babies out of the nest picking tomatoes (I didn’t see the nest) and when I put it back it opened it’s mouth for me to feed it <3

 

This was my corn field. As  you can see, no corn. After I planted corn I surrounded the field with a zillion sunflowers.

I have a great crop of sunflowers. No corn.

 

See you tomorrow!
