Amazing Roots and Delicious Meats at Charlotte MarketCome see us at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market at 1801 Yorkmont Rd, Charlotte, NC 28217
It will probably be a little chilly, but we harvested all sorts of veggies for you and they are ready to go home with you. Enjoy some late fall fresh local veggies.
Oh My! Beets, carrots, and greens continue to produce beautiful roots after the frost. In fact they develop more delicious sweetness in cool nights. These carrots just glow orange and the beets just drip their deep magenta color.
This week on the farm we harvested as fast and as much as we could on Monday and Tuesday because we knew extra cold weather was coming.
Then on the frosty, cold days we worked on one of our farm improvement projects-installing a water line. We're burying 1000 feet of line to reach the upper side of our property. That will help us this winter with the sheep and laying hens. For 3 years we've had to run hoses out to animals form the house spigot. The carefully drain them all so they don't freeze. The water line will bring convenient water right to the animals.
