I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers’ Market tomorrow until 1pm with these beautiful sweet onions and:
that cauliflower, and freshly dug potatoes – new kinds! The German Butterball that I always grow plus Huckleberry Gold (purple skin, creamy yellow flesh) and Peppermint (named that because of their white skin with pink splashes, they have waxy white flesh similar to new potatoes). Red onions, LOTS of broccoli, green cabbage, the first little bit of okra, some tomatoes, fresh garlic, cukes, squash, 3 kinds of kale, basil, sweet potatoes, wheat berries and our grass fed Angus beef in these cuts:
whole ribeye and strip loins, ribeyes, NY strips, filets, sirloins, flank, skirt, flat irons, ground beef, stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, oso bucco, short ribs, brisket, soup bones, liver, sirloin tip roasts, eye of round and bone-in chuck roasts, and hot dogs and andouille sausage made from 100% grass fed beef without any nitrates/nitrites. We have marrow bones and oxtail tomorrow.
AND a special on soup bones – BOGO 50% off! I use these to make bone broth and we also give these bones to the dogs. When I make broth, I freeze a lot of it in ice cube trays then store them in a freezer bag, and when I’m making rice or whatever I can just toss a few broth cubes in and it’s super easy.
newly planted baby sweet potato slips, in a couple weeks they’ll be all leafed out.
first planting of sweet corn is tasseling – I have hoed myself to oblivion the past 2 weeks. Pigweed and lambsquarter can easily overrun the corn if you look away for 2 seconds. We cultivate the middles with a tractor before it gets too tall, but I have to hoe in the row. A trillion bazillion rows…
Oh my gosh. I have too much broccoli coming ready at once so we’re eating it like mad. Just put 3 gallons in the freezer today. This garlic roasted broccoli recipe is so good and really fast to make – I like to grate some parm over it when it’s almost done roasting. And THEN I found this recipe for General Tso’s Cauliflower, (tastes as delicious as it looks in the photo) you know like the chicken? But the cauliflower is the chicken. Oh my GAH! I changed up the ingredients a little but it was super delicious, and I ate an entire giant head of orange cauliflower by myself for a snack. Broccoli also very delicious made this way, it’s what’s for supper tonight.
Ok see you tomorrow!
