Market Stuff for December 29.

I don’t have any pictures, because there’s only mud…so depressing. I just went into the hoop and took this one of lettuce right before I thinned it. It’s even soppy in there from it raining in the side curtains and I can’t close them because then everything will get all slimy and croak. Sigh. Know any jokes?

Since the lettuce was planted way too thickly I have a ton of baby lettuce thinnings so I can have an actual green vegetable in my burrito bowl tonight, which somehow reminded me of this Balsamic Pot Roast recipe. I forgot about it and haven’t made it in forever but it’s so good! It calls for chuck but I’ve always made it with sirloin tip roast. Since it’s gonna rain for another whole week, why not pot roast?

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until around 10:30.

I have radishes, Covington and Beauregard sweet potatoes, hard red winter wheat and I’m not sure what else yet, and I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:

ribeye, NY strip, sirloin, flank, skirt, flap steak, flat iron, osso bucco, short ribs, stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, liver, soup bones, hot dogs.

Ground beef special – Buy 5, Get 1 free.

Bulk pricing on our beef: quarters, halves and wholes – $3.50 lb hang weight plus the cost of processing (.75/lb)

We are now also offering (almost) half-quarters – not quite 1/8 of a cow (60 lbs) for $460. This is a great savings over the regular price you pay per piece, but quarters, halves and wholes are still the best deal.

And now, we are proud to be supplying Misfit CLT Beer & Food Co with our delicious beef.

See you tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

It can stop raining now. This pasture was solid pristine green just a few days before the cows went in; everywhere they step grass turns to slop. He has to go in and out with the skid loader to feed round bales and even with tracks on the loader it slips and slides around. He’s feeding four 1000 lb bales of baleage almost every day.

See you tomorrow!

Market Stuff for December 8.

That is the face of a dog waiting for her cookie.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until around 10am.

I just have a couple bags of spinach and arugula, sweet potatoes, the last of the turmeric, hard red winter wheat. I probably wouldn’t be coming except there were some pre-orders, because I have to find my sled and my snowshoes ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:

ribeye, NY strip, sirloin, skirt, osso bucco, short ribs, flap, philly steak, cube steak, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, liver, soup bones, hot dogs.

We were supposed to get our next beef back from the processor so we’d be re-stocked this week but it will be next week.

I already blanketed all the horses. I’m bad to wait until the last minute because I never believe the weather people, and then I’m draggingย  a hundred pounds of blankets out into the sleet and freezing my fingers off fastening a thousand buckles… but in fact I pulled all their blankets out earlier this week and replaced broken straps and re-waterproofed them, and ordered 2 new blankets and everybody is good for wintery mix!!

See you tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

Market Stuff for November 17.

Last weekend was the first time I’ve ridden since May or June. The wind was really blowing, which is super spooky for some horses – namely mine. He snorts like a pig the whole time (or like a wild stallion, however you want to look at it) but he has had a 6 month vacay from work so he’s just got to get back into the groove.

The ground is so saturated that every step a horse or cow takes turns grass to mud. They put their foot down and it just slides. Ugh, the pastures. Then driving the tractor through to bring hay in…you can’t even imagine the mess. Just where I feed the horses, the mud is so deep it’ll suck your boots off. Ready for this sunny week coming up!!

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until 11. I won’t be there next week.

I have a little baby arugula, a few savoy cabbages, turmeric, 2 kinds of sweet potatoes, some fresh herbs: sage, parsley, mint, chives, and hard red winter wheat.

I love Thanksgiving. So much delicious food. We never have pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving because I haven’t ever been able to grow pumpkins. I make this sweet potato pie instead, and everyone says they like it better! However this year I actually grew some mini pie pumpkins called Cinnamon Girl. They are SO GOOD. One pumpkin makes only one pie, and then I eat the whole pie. Hells yeah. I think there were like 10 of them and now I’m down to five. I usually make something like this healthier version. Mostly on Monday nights when Shane goes to eat with his friends. Pie night ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:

Market Stuff for November 3.

fresh horseradish root! To use it, scrub and scrape it, then grate it and mix it into some white wine vinegar to preserve it in the fridge, or just add it to mayo, sour cream, bloody Marys, etc.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until 11.

horseradish root, turmeric, 2 kinds of sweet potatoes, hard red winter wheat, some herbs and a little ginger. I pretty much had a crop failure but there were a couple plants that made it.

Someone let me know that I shared the wrong link for my breakfast recipe last week so here’s the correct one! I’m still hooked on it.

It seems like we should be slowing down now, but we’re still super busy! Shane is trying to get his triticale drilled for next year, and I’m still pulling up my plastic and getting it stored for next year so I can get my clover cover crop planted, still planting in the hoops and we are renovating the house he grew up in to move in there. It’s taking a really long time. It was built in the 70s so you can just imagine what it needs. So exciting! But I just finished getting the garlic planted and the hoophouse that had tomatoes in it this year is finally ready for planting. I have arugula, spinach, radishes, leeks, green onions, collards, lettuce coming up in the other hoop.

Market Stuff for October 27.

Moo will be 11 soon! He’s getting very gray ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until 11:30 or 12 with:

turmeric, 2 kinds of sweet potatoes, hard red winter wheat. I get tons of questions about what to do with turmeric, aside from tea and adding it to smoothies. I just chop it up and saute it with my onions and garlic, carrots etc. when I’m making stuff. Here’s a recipe forย  Turmeric Rice with Coconut Kaleย  using the powder, but subbing the fresh instead you would just mince it and add it when you add the ginger.

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:

Filet, ribeye, NY strip, sirloin, flat iron, flank, skirt, osso bucco, short ribs, stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, liver, soup bones, oxtail.

It’s calving time, and there are babies everywhere!

The cauliflower is starting to head and I have arugula and spinach coming up in the hoop house. It’s time to plant garlic so I amended with gypsum, sulfur and boron and then tilled; I just wanted to get that done before the rain today and I can plant next week. Gypsum is a form of calcium that doesn’t affect the soil pH. It also adds some sulfur to the soil and most of us around here can use it.

This is in a sloping area and I farm it in strips to help prevent erosion, except for it was so overgrown I couldn’t see exactly where the edge of the bed was that I wanted to till. I have a lot more space than I use in any season and I can’t keep up with it all.

I came across this recipe when I was looking for something new to make for breakfast and it’s so good! I have it almost every day; I just thought I’d share it.ย See you tomorrow!

Market Stuff for October 20.

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

baby turmeric, probably the last hibiscus roselles for tea, eggplant, peppers, winter wheat and Beauregard + Covington sweet potatoes.

baby turmeric hands!

Filet, ribeye, NY strip, sirloin, flat iron, flank, skirt, osso bucco, short ribs, stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, liver, soup bones, oxtail.
