Farm Fresh Ingredients
Fresh Ground Beef – My family and I raise our own beef for our freezer. Beef is loaded with protein and nutrients and other nutrients to keep our bodies balanced and nourished.
Our calves are born either in the spring or the fall. We wean them at 5-6 months old and feed them a grain mixture. The grain mix contains corn we grow ourselves.
The calves are fed for several months. When they are 700-800 pounds, we sell all except for one or two calves we will feed longer to harvest ourselves.
The weight goal for a market beef animal is 1200-1300 pounds. When it’s ready to be harvested, we take it to the local locker plant to harvest for us. A few weeks later, our beef is ready to be picked up. We usually have around 800 pounds of hamburger, steaks, roasts, brisket, and more.
Garden Peas – I plant my pea seeds in the early spring. March is the target month for the early spring garden planting in my gardening zone.
As the peas grow into plants, I maintain them by watering and weeding. Peas love to climb, so I install trellises to keep the plants off the ground. I also mulch the peas with straw to help with the weed control.
Then, once the pods are set and filled, they are ready to be picked and podded. Podding peas can be a tedious task but with practice, one can be very good at it. They can be blanched in hot water and then cold for freezing. My favorite way to eat peas is fresh.
Easy peasy beef mac ‘n’ cheesy is a delicious ways to eat fresh peas.
