Shane is partly done seeding the pastures with cool season forage. It looked so pretty and green through the trees with everything else turning brown.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow with baby turmeric, arugula, Red Russian kale, rainbow chard, eggplant, sweet peppers, jalepenos, sweet potatoes, potatoes: German Butterball, Peppermint, Huckleberry Gold, Carola bakers;  cipollini onions; wheat berries.

SPECIALS: Ground Beef  – Buy 5, Get 1 FREE and Cube Steak is 20% off.

I’ll have our grass fed, grass finished Angus beef in these cuts: Ribeyes, NY strips, filets, sirloins, flat irons, skirt, flank, ground beef, stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, oso bucco  short ribs, brisket, soup bones, liver,  eye of round roasts, bone-in chuck roasts, sirloin tip roasts, and bologna, pastrami, corned beef,  & hot dogs made from 100% grass fed beef without any nitrates/nitrites.


This is less than half of the sweet potatoes. They’re so huge! I’m out of crates until the white potatoes are gone 🙁  Anyone have plastic crates in need of a fine and loving home?


The great thing about eye of round roast in the crock pot is that if you don’t cook it until it completely falls apart, you can make nice, round, beautiful, fork-tender slices to serve on a bed of mashies or cheese grits. So professional looking 🙂 I made this Venezuelan Asada Negro.


Tilling under the millet cover crop to plant clover for the winter. This field is heavy clay; we decided to just cover crop it this year to add organic matter and I’ll grow food crops here next year. It’s super dusty now, red dirt was falling off my clothes when I got off the tractor.


The garlic is planted.  This is my favorite, Tuscan. After many deep thoughts 😉 I’ve decided to bring the rest of the Tuscan to the market because it’s so nice and keep the other for us.


Bahaha! I’ve always wanted to do that. It’s so  supportive yet yielding hahaha. I could barely climb out for sinking in, it was pretty hilarious. Also there were LOTS of grasshopper parts in there. I so need a bean bed! Forget you fancy organic latex mattress that lost any whisper of support after only 3 years so out of desperation we pulled it onto the floor like 8 months ago hoping that would make it even remotely sleep-able.  Boo. Totally filling the air mattress with beans and grasshopper legs, probably be the best sleep of my life.

Ok – see you tomorrow!!
