Eye glazing season
Have you ever watched someone's eyes glaze? Jason and I have been teaching cash flow workshops to farmers for a decade, so we've seen a lot of eyes glaze. I mean, that's not exactly the sexy part of farming, we get it.
But now it's me in the eye glaze territory. It happens just about every November, but because this year has been so crazy, I'm finding my eye glaze amplified. Not only do I find it difficult to focus, I find it difficult to even want to focus. As if someone is droning on and I'm ready for a very long nap. My eyes glaze.
Sunday I laid in the grass with my pets and let my eyes glaze. The weather was glorious and I decided to just live in that warm blank moment. Laundry can wait, house cleaning can wait, what else was I even supposed to do? It can wait. Eye glaze.
I do want to make sure you know about the change in markets and times. There is no more Wednesday market. If you wish to purchase from us for pick up on Wednesday, you'll need to order a one time farm share through our virtual farm stand: https://www.harvie.farm/farm-stand/tumbling-shoals-farm. Pick up is at Tasteful Beans Coffee Shop (you MUST wear a mask to enter to pick up your box, no exceptions) on Wednesday 8-4
Also, we are finished attending the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market for the season. So on Saturday, we will be at the Watauga County (Boone) farmers market from 9am-noone and the downtown Hickory farmers market from 10am until 1pm.
I can't believe how fast we are approaching the Thanksgiving holiday. Our plans may have altered somewhat, but what hasn't changed is that we'll have local pastured turkey on our table again this year for Thanksgiving. Tumbling Shoals Farm alumni Cory Bryk of New Life Farm is once again raising pastured turkeys for the Thanksgiving Holiday. If you are interested in purchasing one of his turkeys, you can find more information and reserve one here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe1z3KXEkQd2oPQoBGqhla03nwCGBM1X0ce5VGvP4r4XqPWdQ/viewform?gxids=7628
