At the Market this Week

Finally it stopped raining, but we so needed it.

Market list for this week

More cuts of lamb. We have one leg that has not been pre-ordered so if you want it or any other cuts, please call, 573-259-1533. Also shank, stew meat, organ meat, shoulder steak again and of course the double bone chops that are going over so well. There are only a couple of packs of ground yet and as much as Magnolia has been tempting me by jumping over all the fences, I did not take her to the processor so no more ground for awhile.

Salad mix with 5 lettuces, beets, Lambs Quarter, Wood sorrel, Kale and a bit of Red Giant Mustard

The sheep ate the onions, but....
