Hi! I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until 1 pm and I’ll be back in my usual spot across the aisle, A17.
I have eggs again this week – organic fed, soy-free, free range, from Carlea Farm.
I have potted plants this week- parsley, cutting celery and chives in 4″ pots.
For veggies I have really pretty bunches of beet greens, big, beautiful bunches of collard greens and swiss chard, bunches of Siberian kale, parsley, and bags of Red Russian kale; leeks; Covington and Beauregard sweet potatoes, hard red winter wheat, and I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished black Angus beef in these cuts:
Nice big NY Strip steaks, sirloin steaks (my fave for kabobs and steak tacos), skirt, flap steak, short ribs, cube steak, stew beef, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, soup bones, hot dogs.
The ground beef special is back this weekend – Buy 5 lbs, get 1 lb 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.
That is a sea of kale.
I was able to till (barely, some of it I couldn’t plant into it was still so mucky and tilling it just made a mess) and get 150 cabbage and broccoli transplants in, and we got the early fingerling potatoes planted. That was last night before today’s rain. Always rushing to beat the rain. We got early squash, cukes and tomatoes in the hoops last week but I’m out of space for indoor planting now. I still have a ton of transplants that need to go in, but until it dries up they’ll just be languishing in their flats.
I’ll have more potted herbs, edible flowers and veggie plants coming soon. See you tomorrow!
