Market Stuff for May 6.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Last year I was at a packed bar wearing a Mardi Gras-style beaded shot glass necklace drinking cheap margaritas garnished with limes that were all stamped with moustaches, yay!

This year I’m wrapped in an old lady sweater drinking tepid water while reheating a  2 day old sweet potato, boo. Anyway, did you know that tomorrow is World Naked Gardening Day? Hmmmm….worst idea ever?? On so many levels.

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

Mini cucumbers; curly, rainbow and lacinato kale, rainbow chard, fresh cut herbs, sweet potatoes, wheat, and the last plants:  Greek oregano, lemon balm, tumbling tom container cherry tomato plants,  mini container  purple eggplant. Here’s a super awesome article about how to use lemon balm and WHY.

We’re all stocked up on our grass fed Angus beef, here is what we have: ground, stew, philly steak, cube steak, ribeyes, NY Strip, filet, sirloin, skirt, flank, flat iron,  brisket, eye of round roasts, bone-in chuck roasts, sirloin tip roasts, short ribs, liver,  osso bucco, bags of soup bones, and thanks to the processor screwing up in a whole new way, we now have bone-LESS chuck roasts. They are super creative there. If no one buys them I’ll send them to the Weeping Radish for pastrami.  All natural hot dogs and bologna made with 100% Angus beef with no added nitrates or nitrites.

I don’t have any pictures. I don’t even know what I did this week. How is it Friday and what happened since last Saturday?? I know I made some delicious food, like lots and lots of basil pesto because the plants are off the chain! Have lots of cut basil for tomorrow. Also, this: Creamy Sweet Potato Noodles with Spinach and Cashew Sauce. I subbed basil for spinach. Made roasted sweet potatoes with leftover cashew sauce and pesto; roasted kale and tomato (tomatoes are coming in already!!)sandwiches on sprouted grain bread with cucumbers and feta and pesto and hummus AND I REALLY NEED a donut pan so I can make these Baked Sweet Potato Donuts with Dark Chocolate and Coconut.

That is all.

See you tomorrow.

P.S. Have some margaritas for me.






  1. Jill…would you please save me a Greek oregano plant? I should be there between 8:0 0-8:30
