It’s already time…

off he goes to rake hay. Reminds me of the fair coming to town ๐Ÿ™‚

Those ferris wheelie things lower down to rake the hay into windrows.

The windrows are a continuous circle spiraling inward and I used to love to gallop them like a racetrack…until I saw that my trusty steed would somehow always poop on the actual hay row. Oops.

It’s not warm enough to get this dry, so it’s being baled wet and wrapped in plastic for this winter’s baleage, as we speak.

…meanwhile…

I couldn’t resist. It’s really running and I love that sound. Soon the creek will dry up for the summer and it’ll be hot as blazes. This is my window!!!!

This is also why I didn’tย  pre-bunch much of my greens and I’ll probably be in the weeds tomorrow haha. I apologize in advance.

See ya tomorrow!

Planting sweet corn!

I’ll be at theย  Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow til 1

I have some really pretty butter and bibb lettuce, spinach, LOADS of curly kale & chard, a little red kale and sweet potatoes.

Kellogg’s Breakfast tomatoes in 3/4″ soil blocks. Potting up into 4″ pots.

I started all my plants in soil blocks this year, to get away from using all that plastic. I used 2″ blocks for the onions and 3/4″ blocks for everything else, which will fit 60 plants to a flat instead of my usual 36.

I’ll have tomato plants for sale in a few weeks! Herbs and flowers too. And other stuff!

Finally, greenerย  pastures ๐Ÿ™‚

Market Stuff for March 24.

We finally got potatoes in the ground,ย  literally hours before the torrential downpours. Huckleberry Gold, German Butterball, and for extra early potatoes, Red Norland and Red Thumb fingerling – were supposed to go in a month ago, but they should still be ready long before the others. Still have Carolas coming in April.

I added gypsum, boron and sulfur before we tilled. Actually Shane did it for me, probably because watching me struggle with theย  Earthway Ev-n-spred is too painful.

Don’t take my face picture!

I hope to see you tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

Market Stuff for March 17.

Hiya! I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until 11 or so.

I have a little bit of greens and sweet potatoes. It doesn’t seem like anything has grown since I picked it last week, but Shane wanted me to come sell beef so I’ll be there. It’s too cold at night I guess, we’ve had 20s and 30s.

I only have pictures of our morning walks, because everything else is muddy since it rains several times a week, and the animals are shedding so they look mangey, and it’s too wet to get in the fields so it’s all weedy and nothing is getting planted, so here we are. Haha do you detect a TONE??

I’ll see you tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

Lettuce is on deck in a couple weeks (dep on weather), then beets and carrots. I hope I planted orange carrots this time…I love the purple carrots, but purple soup is just not appealing.

I haven’t been cooking much so I don’t have any new recipes to post. Mostly living off this most favorite ever kale salad with the curly kale – so good- these Honey and Herb Roasted Root Veggies (sans all the veggies except only sweet potatoes, garlic and onions haha) and fresh spring rolls , with the cabbages and carrots I’ve got hoarded away.

It’s actually not going to be freezing tomorrow, I hope to see you there ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, spring is in the air, right??ย  A couple weeks ago I notice the frogs had thawed out, when I was outside at 3am and I heard them going bonkers. Why was I loitering outside at 3am? Hmmmmm. Mysterious.

Then that same week I noticed the horses were starting to shed their winter coats, and the last but WAY more important sign that spring is approaching quickly is that I was surprised to find I have a tan and my hair has new blond highlights. Just as I was asking myself in the mirror, GAH! Can it get any mousier??! ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope to see you guys tomorrow!!

 

 

An unplanned day at the market, and and unexpected sale on beef!

IMG_20180206_115903

I know I said I wasn’t coming this week – so undependable lately!! But our horseback riding adventures for this weekend are rained out so I’m coming to the market. And we need to sell some beef since I’ve only been to one market this year.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until 10 or 11, depending on how busy it is.

And since I’ve only been to 1 market this year, Shane wants to have a special to move out some beef. We are low on cuts and have a big order coming back from the processor next week, so he wants to do 20% off – see below!

I should have some greens but I’m not sure what yet and it won’t be much, also sweet potatoes and leeks. I just wanted to get this market update out early. I’m also not sure if I’m coming next Saturday…but starting in March it should be warming up enough to have veggies every weekend.

We are doing 20% off all of these cuts tomorrow:

our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, ribeyes, NY Strip, sirloin steak, skirt, brisket (8 lb size and 3 lb size), shoulder roast, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roasts, liver.

The special won’t apply to the following:

Beer brats, andouille sausage, hot dogs (skinny and quarter pounder), sliced corned beef, sliced pastrami and sliced bologna made from our 100% grass fed Angus beef, no added nitrates or nitrites.

My view from the ground ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve got the greenhouse full of onions, herbs, early hoophouse tomatoes. The top photo is just onions in the soil blocks – don’t they look like brownies? SPECIAL BROWNIES. So being in there all the time I was really craving brownies ๐Ÿ™‚ and I found this awesome recipe, that I made and ate the whole batch watching the Superbowl –

4 Ingredient Sweet Potato Brownies: sweet potato, almond butter, cocoa powder and maple syrup. And then I was jacked up on the caffeine all night from the cocoa powder. Worth it!

I hope to see you guys tomorrow <3
