Last Sunday we went riding at H Cooper Black in South Carolina. I had so much fun!! We planned our route for a 1.5 hour ride but missed a turn and ended up riding 3.5 hours. Death to the knees.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow yay!! with kale, leeks, orange and purple sweet potatoes. I’ve never been so happy to pick some kale before.

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, boneless chuck roast, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roasts, liver.

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.

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.

Shane has been dragging fallen trees out of the woods all winter – there are so many! The woodstove heats our house and the greenhouse, and it’s time to start planting in the greenhouse so I got it cleaned up and turned the heat on. Time for a big load of wood.

Yes, I am wearing pink crocks and socks. Don’t judge me. If you lived out in the country, deep in the woods and spent all your time alone with just plants and bugs you’d Dress Crazy 10 Ways too.

So that is a soil block maker. This year I’m doing soil blocks for growing my transplants instead of using the plastic inserts. I’m so sick of dealing with those. Carl tricked me into doing the blocks haha. He showed me how to make them, I did a test run that was uhhhhh …passable,  and I borrowed his blocker to start onion seeds. I did 47 trays on Monday and Tuesday. It’s heavy and a lot more work and it’s kicking my butt.  I hope I don’t get abnormally large, man-style biceps! And traps! Ugh.
