More on Organization: Weekly Schedule At A Glance, Focused Event Days~ Errand and Desk Days, More Yummy Market Fresh Recipes!

Everyone that knows me knows I love to create schedules, make lists and have multiple day planners & calenders.  I love everything about organization. Over the years I realized that I inherited this trait from my mother... who I may say has even the labels of her spice jars and canned goods all facing in the same direction and to size... they even might be alphabetized- I've never dared look.  Her cupboards are immaculate and she never has dust. Mind you, it is just her and my dad and she only had me!  I am glad that I have this trait thanks to her... even though I never realized it while I was growing up.  It has only been since I have had a home of my own and my family have I realized all the important things she taught me... or at least tried to!  My 'other' mom, is also extremely organized~ she's actually the one who introduced me to The Flylady program.  She has helped me tremendously in many area's, especially with sewing 'stuff'.  Her material/craft closet is also immaculate and completely organized right up to type's of fabrics and colors.  Her craft stuff is always tidy and in it's place!  What wonderful examples I have been blessed with!  Anyway, back to schedules & lists...   [Read More]

Spring :-)

Hello Again All :-)

It is pouring rain here today.  But with rain comes mud and with softer ground comes life from deep below.  I look so forward to the first signs of daffodil and tulip tips poking thier little noeses through the ground. 

The Canadian Geese are starting to fly in, showing us those 'v's we've all come to expect and look forward to.  Yes and then come all the little birds that say, "spring is coming".  Ahhhhhh, spring.  My favorite time of year.

We've secured the dates, locations and chefs for our Farm To Table Dinner Event's.  We are very happy to working with The Thumb Area Tourism Council on these events.  Here's the scoop;

Dinner #1:

We will have this Event at The Octogan Barn in Gagetown, Mi on Saturday, August 27th, 2011, Time still TBA.  We have secured the Cheff from the Hot Spot "The Van Camp House" in Port Sanilac.  See their listing in Michigan Travel Ideas put out by Midwest Living as one of the Top 10 Restaurnats in The Thumb of Michigan.  Andy Fabien is an awesome Chef.  Some of the producers that will be involved are Hampshire Farms, Bellwether Farm, Island Farms, Cheeky Monkey's Foods, and of course us at The Garden Gate CSA Farm :-)   This event will focus on Producers primarily in the Thumb of Michigan.   We are very excited.  We will keep you posted when tickets are available.

Farm to Table Evemt

Hello Again!

The snow fell on us, that's for sure.  We have drifts up to 7' tall next to our barn hill and up against some of our out buildings.  The snow is simply glistening and shows like diamonds lost all around.  There is truly something beautiful about the snow untouched.

We are extremely excited to announce our plans for a Farm to Table Dinner Event.  WE have secured Govenor Warners Beautiful Historic Grounds.  It is scheduled for Friday, September 16th, 2011 at 6:30 pm.  Check out our farms schedules of events.  We have also sesured some of Michigans finest Chefs, TBA with ticket price and other particulars.  OUr goal is to promote all the vendors from our Downtown Farmington Farmers  & Artisans Farmers market.  We will be accepting reservations and will keep you posted.  If you are not on our farms email list, please sign up at . This will keep you posted on all our events, etc.
