Rows of hard red winter wheat popping up! So pretty in the sunrise. This will be ready to cut in July.

I won’t be at the market next week, but I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow with:

The last of the cabbage and cauliflower. I think I’ve already said that like 3 weeks but who knew! This time for real. Curly, toscano & red Russian kale, swiss chard;  green onions, lots of purple and orange carrots, parsley, a couple other things and sweet potatoes.

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts: ground, stew, philly steak, cube steak, ribeyes, NY Strip, sirloin steak, flat iron, skirt, brisket, shoulder roast with or without a marrow bone, boneless chuck roast, rump roast, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roasts, liver, bags of soup bones.

Beer brats, andouille sausage, hot dogs (skinny and quarter pounder), sliced corned beef, sliced pastrami and sliced bologna made from our 100% grass fed Angus beef, no added nitrates or nitrites. There are 2 packages of bologna left.

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

OK: Am I behind the curve on the kale sandwiches?? I just discovered this and I can’t stop. Every day this week, and sometimes really wanted another one for lunch. I stumbled across this breakfast sandwich with sauteed kale and smashed avocado on Pinterest and changed it to my liking, including lots of apple cider vinegar and hot sauce in the kale and sub out the tempeh.  It’s so delicious!  SO DELICIOUS. Then I searched kale sandwich on Pinterest and everything looked so amazing  I had to just shut ‘er down. Flavor overload.


Shane got me this 12′ wide landscape plastic 2 years ago and it’s fantastic for crops!  I had been using the 6′, which I can take up by myself with a strap and the gator. I can pull it up, clean it off, fold it up and stack it for next year. I can’t do any of that with the 12′ plastic though, it’s too heavy and unwieldy. Since the wind never stops blowing at my house, trying to fold it up alone makes me want to plunge long nails into my eyeballs!! Thankfully  Shane and his helper offered to come help with taking up the last of the plastic Tuesday before the rain and put it away, so we could get the fields tilled and cover cropped before the rain on Wednesday. It took the 3 of us about 3 hours, a skid loader and 2 gators to finish with the plastic and it took me til after dark to get it tilled, so there was no cover crop happening. I’ll get that done next week.

So I had to cut all the cauliflower and cabbages that were still growing, but it was worth it for saving my eyeballs.


At least the shortest day of the year is behind us now! I made a winter solstice stew with all of the beautiful fresh and frozen veggies I grew this year.

I’ll see you guys tomorrow, and if I don’t, I hope you have the best-ever Christmas, Happy Holidays, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! and thank you so much for supporting us another year! You’re the best <3 <3 <3
