Today was a busy day! Cecil and I got up early (he is always up at the crack of dawn! It takes me a little longer to have the desire to face the day or get out of the warm comfy bed :o)
I made one of my "Big Breakfast" Country ham with grits and scrambled eggs with cheese..(no biscuits this time :o( it seems to hold pretty good if we have something we want to do, that may make us late to have lunch or something to sustain us.. Our aim today was finding one of the Farms I found on the Internet that was not to far from our area 30 to 45 minutes away.. We knew it was late in the Season to be finding much , but it was good for the "Ride in the Country" and be able to venture into new territory, kind of like finding our own way. It seems most people that like to do the things I like doing are on the Internet..but anyone living close by isn't into "Homesteading or Farming" the way Cecil and I are at it.
So after Breakfast and with my water bottle..off we went into the wild countryside :o)...We were able to follow the directions that took us straight to the farm, where we were able to purchase some nice Okra, Sweet Potatoes and a nice fat watermelon..on the way there we saw a nice field of greens..on the way back we stopped and got Three pounds! they were more than enough for one meal so I stuck half in the freezer to eat the weekend...I forgot that some farmers pick the greens for you...and this one just picked the leaves < I hadn't had that done since I left NJ. at the "Spector Farm" that's why I had so much. We chatted with the farmer for a spell..and came home happy and contented that we "Found a Farm".
Should I tell you the greens were divine :o) the taters were good too! I was too busy cooking to take a picture..it would have only made you hungry .. My greens and collards are down (planted) and I'll be showing the harvest when its time :o) that's the only reason I bought those today, until mine are ready...they were picked fresh out the field while I watched and waited...
