We got sweet potato slips planted this week! About halfway through, Shane said, “We need a mule.” because when his dad and aunt were young, they had to plant them by hand and his Aunt Pat would sit at the wagon where the mule was hitched and feed them to the mule to get rid of them. Hilarious!

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow ’til 1 with:

the first few bunches of red beets from the new crop and the first broccoli and green cabbage; mini cukes and the first lemon squash; red thumb fingerling potatoes, spring onion bunches, the last of my garlic crop just dug up this morning; mint & chives bunches, the 3 kinds of kale.

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:

Filet, Ribeye, NY strip, skirt steak, sirloin steak, flank, flat iron, osso bucco, short ribs, stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, shoulder roast, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, soup bones, liver, andouille sausage, quarter pound hot dogs, and sliced pastrami made from our 100% grass fed Angus beef, no added nitrates or nitrites.

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

Red Thumb Fingerlings

I figured up that I came out in the hole on the Red Norlands but made out ok on the fingerlings, and the fingerlings are much more tender and delicious anyway. I might grow them again.

We made these baby potatoes on the grill for a cookout last weekend. After grilling I took them off the skewers and tossed them in the herb butter again and some parm. And tonight I’m making this crispy potato curry  to go with our fresh cucumbers, broccoli and cauliflower 🙂

See you tomorrow!
