Market Stuff for January 12.

Is it a farm dog or a city dog?? We don’t know.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until around 11am.

I have a few green onion bunches, a lot of cauliflower, a few black radishes, Covington and Beauregard sweet potatoes, hard red winter wheat, and I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:

ribeye, NY strip, sirloin, flank, flap steak, flat iron, short ribs, stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, liver, soup bones, hot dogs.

Ground beef special – Buy 5, Get 1 free.

Bulk pricing on our beef: quarters, halves and wholes – $3.50 lb hang weight plus the cost of processing (.75/lb)

We are now also offering (almost) half-quarters – not quite 1/8 of a cow (60 lbs) for $460. This is a great savings over the regular price you pay per piece, but quarters, halves and wholes are still the best deal.

We eat a lot of Buddha bowls, like these – or there are about 10, 000 different ways to make them. Lately sweet potatoes, avocado, green salad of some kind, cauliflower, mushrooms and wild rice, then covered in some kind of delicious homemade dressing. I’m always trying new dressings so it doesn’t seem like we’re eating the same thing all the time. I have a Pinterest board of only dressing recipes. It has 68 pins :/ Wednesday I made this Ginger Dressing similar to ones I’ve had at Asian restaurants but this has a veggie base (no oil) and it’s all just thrown in the blender. It’s really good.

I made this delicious soup this week, Cozy Autumn Wild Rice Soup, (coincidentally requiring one pound of sweet potatoes) and added radish greens, baby collards and spinach instead of kale since that’s what I have. I’ve been reading up on how amazing the radish greens are, and although I felt sure they would ruin my delicious soup we gave it a shot. They didn’t ruin it at all and in fact I am currently enjoying said soup with a boatload of chopped black radish greens (they are much more substantial than the red radish greens BTW… I’m kinda on the fence) and fresh chopped green onions. Nom.

AND in unrelated recipe news, I must share the absolute hands-down most perfectΒ  salted caramel sauce that is amazing on apples, bananas, ice cream and super dope in coffee plus so easy to make in like 10 minutes. Its’s just 1c brown sugar, 1/4 c virgin coconut oil, 1/2 c coconut milk (from the can, not the box) 1 Tbsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp sea salt, in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring til melted then once it simmers turn down to low and simmer a few more minutes, stirring constantly. It probably won’t get very thick while it’s hot but when it’s cool it’s perfect. I don’t like my coffee sweet, but around Christmas I could not stop having salted caramel coffees – so I’m kind of over it now but this recipe is a keeper and must be shared with the world. It’s adapted from the pumpkin cheesecake I made at Thanksgiving.

We went to the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden this week, Saturday night is the last night for the Holiday Lights. We loved it! The orchid conservatory is unbelievable too. It was really fun, if you’re looking for something awesome to do Saturday night.

See you tomorrow πŸ™‚

Market Stuff for December 29.

I don’t have any pictures, because there’s only mud…so depressing. I just went into the hoop and took this one of lettuce right before I thinned it. It’s even soppy in there from it raining in the side curtains and I can’t close them because then everything will get all slimy and croak. Sigh. Know any jokes?

Since the lettuce was planted way too thickly I have a ton of baby lettuce thinnings so I can have an actual green vegetable in my burrito bowl tonight, which somehow reminded me of this Balsamic Pot Roast recipe. I forgot about it and haven’t made it in forever but it’s so good! It calls for chuck but I’ve always made it with sirloin tip roast. Since it’s gonna rain for another whole week, why not pot roast?

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until around 10:30.

I have radishes, Covington and Beauregard sweet potatoes, hard red winter wheat and I’m not sure what else yet, and I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:

ribeye, NY strip, sirloin, flank, skirt, flap steak, flat iron, osso bucco, short ribs, stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, liver, soup bones, hot dogs.

It can stop raining now. This pasture was solid pristine green just a few days before the cows went in; everywhere they step grass turns to slop. He has to go in and out with the skid loader to feed round bales and even with tracks on the loader it slips and slides around. He’s feeding four 1000 lb bales of baleage almost every day.

See you tomorrow!

I’m pretty sure this is the first year ever decorating the tree while it was snowing. That was so fun!

See you tomorrow!

 

 

 

Market Stuff for December 8.

That is the face of a dog waiting for her cookie.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until around 10am.

I just have a couple bags of spinach and arugula, sweet potatoes, the last of the turmeric, hard red winter wheat. I probably wouldn’t be coming except there were some pre-orders, because I have to find my sled and my snowshoes πŸ˜‰

We were supposed to get our next beef back from the processor so we’d be re-stocked this week but it will be next week.

I already blanketed all the horses. I’m bad to wait until the last minute because I never believe the weather people, and then I’m draggingΒ  a hundred pounds of blankets out into the sleet and freezing my fingers off fastening a thousand buckles… but in fact I pulled all their blankets out earlier this week and replaced broken straps and re-waterproofed them, and ordered 2 new blankets and everybody is good for wintery mix!!

See you tomorrow πŸ™‚

Market Stuff for November 17.

Last weekend was the first time I’ve ridden since May or June. The wind was really blowing, which is super spooky for some horses – namely mine. He snorts like a pig the whole time (or like a wild stallion, however you want to look at it) but he has had a 6 month vacay from work so he’s just got to get back into the groove.

The ground is so saturated that every step a horse or cow takes turns grass to mud. They put their foot down and it just slides. Ugh, the pastures. Then driving the tractor through to bring hay in…you can’t even imagine the mess. Just where I feed the horses, the mud is so deep it’ll suck your boots off. Ready for this sunny week coming up!!

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until 11. I won’t be there next week.

I have a little baby arugula, a few savoy cabbages, turmeric, 2 kinds of sweet potatoes, some fresh herbs: sage, parsley, mint, chives, and hard red winter wheat.

I love Thanksgiving. So much delicious food. We never have pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving because I haven’t ever been able to grow pumpkins. I make this sweet potato pie instead, and everyone says they like it better! However this year I actually grew some mini pie pumpkins called Cinnamon Girl. They are SO GOOD. One pumpkin makes only one pie, and then I eat the whole pie. Hells yeah. I think there were like 10 of them and now I’m down to five. I usually make something like this healthier version. Mostly on Monday nights when Shane goes to eat with his friends. Pie night πŸ˜‰

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:

Market Stuff for November 3.

fresh horseradish root! To use it, scrub and scrape it, then grate it and mix it into some white wine vinegar to preserve it in the fridge, or just add it to mayo, sour cream, bloody Marys, etc.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until 11.

horseradish root, turmeric, 2 kinds of sweet potatoes, hard red winter wheat, some herbs and a little ginger. I pretty much had a crop failure but there were a couple plants that made it.

Someone let me know that I shared the wrong link for my breakfast recipe last week so here’s the correct one! I’m still hooked on it.

It seems like we should be slowing down now, but we’re still super busy! Shane is trying to get his triticale drilled for next year, and I’m still pulling up my plastic and getting it stored for next year so I can get my clover cover crop planted, still planting in the hoops and we are renovating the house he grew up in to move in there. It’s taking a really long time. It was built in the 70s so you can just imagine what it needs. So exciting! But I just finished getting the garlic planted and the hoophouse that had tomatoes in it this year is finally ready for planting. I have arugula, spinach, radishes, leeks, green onions, collards, lettuce coming up in the other hoop.
