I think there’s a horror movie of that name. Where people die when the mist rolls in? I’m only a few days away! Enough already. It’s been misty, dampish, SWAMPY for at least 2 weeks. The animals are wet and muddy upon wet and muddy. I’ve tracked mud all over the world. Everything is slimy and sticky. WHERE IS THE SUN?
It’s too wet for farmers to cut their soggy beans, which are pretty much rotting in the pod now, and wheat should have been planted last month. BUT it’s almost Thanksgiving and I’m super excited about that. Plus…..
Horseradish root! I’ll have it tomorrow at the Charlotte Regional Farmers’ Market, along with a little bit of a lot of different things: turnips, green onions, kale, beet greens, cutting celery, parsley, chives, spicy red onions, and a few bunches of this and that. Oh and gigantic sweet potatoes. If you thought they were huge last year, get a load of these. All I can say is, you know there are abundant nutrients in that soil because there sure wasn’t any rain to grow them this big.
And our Animal Welfare Approved, Certified Grassfed Angus beef: Beef Andouille sausage, sliced pastrami, hot dogs, and corned beef all made from our Angus beef with no added nitrates or nitrites. Ground beef, stew meat, philly steak, cube steak, oso bucco, short ribs, brisket, soup bones, bone-in chuck, sirloin tip roast, eye of round, sirloin steaks, NY Strips, ribeyes, filets, skirt, flank, flat irons.
Everything is so beautiful right now. Shane scattered ryegrass seed over the whole world, and now everywhere is super green, even our yard. It will stay bright green all winter until the spring heat kills it.
It was hard to tear myself away from the creek this morning to go pick greens. In the mist.
