It’s waiting for you in the cooler. It will see you in the morning :)

I’ve been juicing it, like so:

Chard, sweet potato, lemon, ginger and I had about 2 gallons of muscadines in the freezer from last summer that I wasn’t sure what to do with and they’re fabulous in the juice!

One of our favorite chard recipes is the Pasta with Greens, on the recipes page of our website. I usually make it without the pasta.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers’ Market tomorrow with lots of this gorgeous chard, some kale and collards, 2 kinds of lettuce, sweet potatoes, chives, hard red winter wheat and our grass fed Angus beef in these cuts: brisket, ribeye loin and strip loin, ground beef, stew meat, cube steak, philly steak, filet mignon, short ribs, osso buco, soup bones, liver, sirloin tip roasts, eye of round and bone-in chuck roasts, hot dogs and andouille sausage made from 100% grass fed beef without any nitrates/nitrites.

I know they only have a pea-sized brain, but aren’t there some kind of instincts that should let them know this not the ideal place to lay an egg?

Ugh, this week was so boring. Just work. Hey, like Shane always reminds me (in a frustrated voice): You can’t be entertained every minute of every day.  I had to drag the horse pastures – you hook this chain drag up to the tractor and drive all over creation for an eternity, and it scatters all the manure piles. Last time, my iphone fell off the tractor and got dragged.

Yep, there's the hat.

Yep, there’s the hat.

This time, my hat blew off and although I had time to stop the tractor and retrieve it before it went under the drag, I decided not to. I just let it get dragged. Turns out, it was pretty fun. So I got off and picked it up, and once I got going again I threw it back down and dragged over it again. Don’t judge me.

Soooo that was pretty much the highlight of my week. You?

I did go on a late night Gator ride to put the cows up with my honey, that was fun. Hey – see how nice and flat the road is?

Thank GOODNESS we have a bulldozer to do that. I don’t have a roof over my head to do my work so I just stand in the burning sun, and the freezing rain and the wind that never stops blowing here…but we have a bulldozer.

:) See you guys tomorrow!
