Hello baby dill :)

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow with lots of greens: chard, collards, red kale and curly kale, beets, carrots, sweet potatoes, wheat.

I’ll have our grass fed, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts: Ribeyes, NY strips, sirloins, ground beef, stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, short ribs, liver, shoulder roast. Bologna, corned beef & hot dogs made with 100% grass fed Angus without added nitrates or nitrites.

I made something super delish, which I copied from a restaurant. It’s potatoes and carrots roasted with a little oil ( I use coconut oil) smoked paprika, salt, pepper, ground coriander AND KALE. You roast the potatoes and carrots at 400  til almost done then add torn kale tossed in a little oil – roast 15 ish more minutes. The kale gets little crispy edges and it’s out of control. Then when it’s done roasting you toss it with olive oil, the freshly squeezed juice of a lemon plus the finely grated rind and a clove of finely grated garlic. The lemon KILLS IT. So good.

So right now I’m clearing out one of the hoop houses to plant tomatoes-a huge job. Chard roots have to be dug out of the ground, they’re so massive and there are 4 rows of that alone. I’ll have beets and carrots for this week and next week, then they’ll be gone and the only things left to clear out of that hoop are red Russian kale and chard but I’ll still have those in limited amounts from the other hoop for a couple months. Also in the other hoop are the curly kale, toscano kale and collards.

We’ll have beef back from the processor for March 25 market, and we took an extra one since 2 people ordered quarters, so if anyone is interested in a quarter or half, there will be one available.

Cilantro bowl, an experiment. You know how if you buy a cilantro plant and transplant it, it bolts almost immediately? Or even if you grow it from seed which seems to take aeons, then you only get to pick it like 3 times and it’s bolting. So I saw this on pinterest (eyeroll) where you plant it thickly then keep trimming the tops off while it’s still baby size so you have a constant supply and allegedly it won’t bolt.

I’ll keep you posted on the riveting developments :) See you tomorrow!
