Country Girl Produce

This country girls is so busy it’s not funny and should explain why I haven’t posted this week.

We have about six bushel of potatoes left over in the cellar and  we want to sale five of them.

Potatoes perfect for peeling for fried potatoes, potatoe soup, mashed potatoes, potato salad, and perfect for canning.

We also have lots of fresh asparagus for sale.  I’ve washed it, kept it chilled and it’s gallon Ziploc bags with a pound in each bag.

Would anyone like to buy some fresh eggs for $2.00 per dozen?

You just can’t beat fresh produce straight from the store and I’m thinking about selling fresh loaves of bread too.

Not the best photo but a two pound loaf of homemade bread and made using our own honey.  It's divine!!

I am a wife, mother, and grandmother that lives on a farm in Craig County, Virginia and I am retired. I love to cook, read, quilt, craft, garden, hunt and take long walks in the woods. I have one gorgeous teen granddaughter, a wonderful little grandson and two beautiful and caring children, boy & girl. I've been married to my farmer husband for 46 years and he's the "love of my life"!! I love doing things the "old" way such as canning, making maple syrup & cider, handcrafts and baking. I've taught myself to crochet, embroider, and quilt with help from my paternal grandmother. I could read until the cows come home. We live off the products we raise and hunt for the most part. We run 75 head of cattle on our farm, 30 chickens, three rabbits and one dog. I help my husband with the cattle, feeding the livestock, hauling in firewood, fence repair, and general maintenance on the farm. I was a stay-at-home mom to my children and then went to work when they finished high school. I was a cook at a School for At-Risk Teens and part-time substitute teacher. Then I started work at our local Farm Bureau and stayed there for 17 years. I worked at Virginia Tech for almost five years and decided to take early retirement in July of 2015. NOW, I'm a full-time farmwife and loving every minute of it! I love to read fiction and the Bible. I'm currently hooked on quilting novels and Annie's Attic mysteries. I started this blog in 2011 and have met so many interesting bloggers and have kept up with my friends through my blog. I love to hunt with my bow and rifle and with a camera. We hunt to fill the freezer and cellar but would never kill anything for the fun of it. I have friends and family all over the United States. Some of my ancestry last names are Bradley, Dickson, Hylton, and Rose. I've lost both of my parents to brain cancer and miss them very much. I have one sister and four living brothers. I was raised in Paint Bank VA and moved to New Castle VA when I married. I went to school in Waiteville, WV, Gap Mills, WV and New Castle Va with a short semester of college at Virginia Western Community College in Roanoke VA.

    1. Everyone that buys my eggs talks about how good they are and after eating over-easy eggs at Cracker Barrel for breakfast last week with hubby and our son I understand why.
      Our potatoes were huge and so good last summer and more than half were baking size. I’m pulling some of the smaller ones today to peel and slice. I’m going to can at least 14 quarts and maybe get three or four canners of them. I hate to let anything go to waste and you never know from year to year what your crop will be depending on Mother Nature.
      Have a great day Julie!!

  1. Good heavens.
    You are a busy little bee and so self-sufficient and efficient.
    I’d be there at the gate of your farm ( property) with my money for the fresh eggs and the asparagus.
    Cheers and good selling.

    PS: Miserable day here ( Sunday May 1st) – bleak and drizzle.
    Hope your weather has cleared.

    1. So busy I almost missed your comment!! And we haven’t even got the garden started yet. I have two quilts to make before June for graduation gifts and got lots of birthdays in May and June. I feel like I’m in a tornado that doesn’t want to sit down.
