The Great Transition

I forgot to mention last week…

Hans is single, ladies.

The Daily Steward

Well folks, after a lovely midweek break to celebrate our Independence Day holiday, we’ve been back at it, harvesting some delicious summertime treats to grace your refrigerators and delight your taste buds with flavor explosions! I hope that all you readers out there had a wonderful holiday, and that you all have all of your phalanges still intact! Hans and I ventured to our friends house for a wonderful cookout and pot-luck, but here’s the problem with a summertime cookout and pot-luck that is comprised primarily of a bunch of farmers: zucchini. Not only zucchini, but squash, eggplant, peppers, so on and so forth. Feast or famine, folks. It’s the name of the game. I definitely ate too much, but that’s kind of my modus operandi.

Now that the holiday has passed, it’s really time for me to get down to business moving my operations from the Lomax Incubator farm over here to the Riverbend Estates where I’ve been living going on three years now. The time has come, the walrus said. It’s bittersweet to be leaving Lomax. I love that place, it’s a beautiful gem of a property so close to the town of Concord, my business would not be where it is today without the program, and it is nice to go to work and have a community right there to socialize with every day. Honestly though, I’m sick of driving in circles all day long, having to plan out meals, blah blah blah, you get the idea. It will be way more convenient to farm where I live, and live where I farm. In fact, I consider it one of the perks, and I’m SO EXCITED. So, we’ve stopped the planting at Lomax, and it’s time to get down to brass tacks. Ya dig?

I hope to see you all at the market tomorrow! Hans and I have been working really hard to bring you some delicious Green Beans, Onions, Squash, Zucchini, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Peppers, Cherry Tomatoes, Microgreens and Woodlot-Raised, Non-GMO Eggs! Our backs are really sore because of such, so we’d be much obliged if you came to see us at the Piedmont Farmer’s Market tomorrow from 8am til Noon. WILL ACCEPT DEEP-TISSUE MASSAGE AND/OR ACUPUNCTURE AS PAYMENT FOR PRODUCE! Seriously though, green beans are the worst…

Have a great weekend! I think it’s supposed to cool down a touch this weekend. I’m sick of going through AT LEAST three shirts every day…
