That’s my pony. He used to give lessons to kids back in the day. I’m pretty sure he misses all the attention. One time I left his gate open and he went into the tack room and ate a 3 pound bag of apples including the bag. I said, well it was nice knowing you because I can’t afford the surgery to have that plastic bag unentangled from your intestines and I’m sure you’re going to colic and die a tragic, senseless death now. A couple days later I saw that the apple bag had left the building haha! No harm done.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow with lots of greens: chard, collards, red kale, lacinato 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.

We have meat coming back from the processor soon  so we would love to offer 20% off on all steaks tomorrow!

Ribeyes, NY Strip and sirloins are 20% off – also we will have one more beef quarter available at the bulk price of $3.50/lb plus processing.

I have onion plants available – it’s time to plant now!

Four varieties: sweet, red, yellow storage and red storage. There are approximately 100 plants to a flat which will plant a 36′ row. They’re $22/flat or $5/6 pack (appx 18 onions – plants a 6′ row). If you’re interested please text me at 704.699.2208 to let me know what you’d like. I’ll start planting this week and if no one wants any I’ll plant them all :)

I’m still using my onions from last July, stored in the fridge drawer. I also still have 3 quarts of chopped onions in the freezer so it really pays to grow your own!

Wasn’t the snow so beautiful!

I’m super busy in the greenhouse. All the herbs and tomatoes need potting up into 4″ pots.

I start the thyme in these plug flats, because the seed is invisible. The seeds come, and you open the envelope and you’re like, Where are the seeds?

You just have to believe.

Just sprinkle on the imaginary seeds; they can’t be covered because they are light-dependant germinators. When they’re ready I pot them up, 3 plugs to a pot.

I’ve been loving the carrots and beets! This is the last week for mine. I rarely grow carrots and I’m so happy to have them now. Have you tried making nori rolls?

SO GOOD.

Grated raw carrots and beets, avocado and cilantro or mint. BTW I ate my whole cilantro bowl in 2 days – SO SAD.

You just spread a little rice on a nori sheet and add toppings. You really don’t have to have a sushi rolling mat thing but it makes it a lot easier. YouTube has lots of videos :)

Ok, I’ll see you tomorrow! For the first time all winter, Saturday is not going to be the coldest day of the week.
