Farmer's market update

The farmer’s markets around here are small but very good. I’ve not been going to the big farmer’s markets like the ones in Winston-Salem or Sandy Ridge. The King and Danbury farmer’s markets, both of which are in Stokes County, have had everything I need. I’m also getting to know some of the local farmers, who are always happy to take the time to tell you where their farm is and how they farm. Above are free-range eggs from Pinnacle, tomatoes and pimento peppers from Francisco, and apples from north Stokes. Pimento peppers are rarely grown around here for some reason, but they’re my favorite, eaten raw and fresh, or whomped into what I call Carolina Church Supper Potato Salad. I also got some Stokes County honey, which they said was blackberry honey. I’ve never had blackberry honey before. It’s really good.

    Great looking framing. Any finished photos of the home and landscape? Only negative feedback I have is the usage of OSB in lieu of actual CDX plywood for the sheathing. For just a few bucks more a sheet, plywood will withstand the ravages of time and hold up so much better in high humidity environments. Plus plywood is so much stronger than “chip-board” I have been framing and building for 43 years and would never consider the use of OSB for any application.
