We’re breaking up. Yeah YOU Stowell’s Evergreen. Stupid heirloom sweet corn from the 1800s. I’ve spent 3 years of my life trying to make this work and I’m over it. I’m going back to my dependable old hybrid sweet corn. We get along so much better. Some things just need to become extinct, because they suck.
Creamy dreamy Carola bakers! Smoky, rich Tongue of Fire Beans! I have new things for tomorrow at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market. OH all the picking. It’s all on the downhill slide now though, everything’s slowing down.
Veggies: heirloom tomatoes including huge romas; German Butterball and Carola potatoes, both German heirlooms. Edamame, 2 kinds of eggplant, mixed cherry tomatoes, tongue of fire shell beans – oh so delicious with just salt and pepper! Tricolor snap beans, lemon squash, purple basil, red & sweet onions, garlic, okra, cutting celery, parsley, the last of the sweet potatoes.
Beef: hot dogs, beer brats, corned beef and bologna all made from our Angus beef with no added nitrates or nitrites. Ground beef, stew meat, short ribs, oso bucco, brisket, liver, soup bones, oxtail, bone-in chuck, sirloin tip roast, eye of round, sirloin steaks, NY Strips, ribeyes, filets, skirt, flank, flat iron.
This sandwich. Madness!
The STOOPIDEST tomato sandwich EVER: a Giant Belgium or Brandywine tomato, which must be cut as thick if not thicker than the bread; Duke’s Soft Crust Sourdough bread (get it at the market), lots of Himalayan sea salt and fresh ground pepper, and of course a boatload of mayo slathered on. You can thank me later.
Before the rain came this week I drove the hay truck for Shane while he loaded bales from the field, and the dogs helped by filling up the cab with their hot breath and then drooling all over me. Gross.
