Market Stuff for March 4!


How is it already March??

I don’t have any vegetable photos this week it’s just HORSES ALL DAY.

I left Sunday for the mountains with my sister and our horses for her birthday and came back Wednesday and so there was plenty of time for horse pics while I was away.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow with lots of greens: chard, collards, red kale and curly kale, beets, sweet potatoes, wheat.

I’ll have our grass fed, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts: Ribeyes, NY strips, sirloins, ground beef, stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, short ribs, liver, shoulder roast. Bologna, corned beef & hot dogs made with 100% grass fed Angus without added nitrates or nitrites.


Caratacus worked so hard on the steep mountain trails (couldn’t take pictures on the steep ones, was holding on for dear life)!

After 8 years of having an unpronounceable name, I’m just going with Carats (like carrots) because of all the explaining.


It was his first time away from home overnight. He was not loving his stall whatsoever and didn’t touch his hay or water the first night. He circled and whinnied and lost about 50 pounds by the time we loaded up to come home on Wednesday. His stall looked like it got hit by a poop-nado.

He got enough carrots and Stud Muffins for about 4 horses though, so he didn’t completely starve.


Definitely sending out a jailbird vibe 🙁

He would eat hay if I was in his stall, so I sat down on a hay flake and edited my photos. He would take a bite of hay and then stand over me chewing, dropping loads of hay in my hair and down my shirt – itchy! I scooted over away from the hay rack but he’d just walk over and chew over my head again 🙂 So needy.

Shane was in charge of the greenhouse while I was gone, it’s packed with all the baby plants for my livelihood this growing season…no pressure! He also had to do all my chores: feeding the horses twice a day, the chickens, dogs, cats and the hoop houses. He did a great job.

If he and I ever want to go away together, my sister has to be in charge of all that stuff for me. So needy.

I hope you’re coming tomorrow, dress warm!



  1. I just love to read your posts! Love your humor. We started with horses & now have dairy goats, chickens & donkey so your animal humor is never lost on me. One of these days we’ll come to the market to meet cha.

    Bless ya!
