Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

John's Organic Farm

We live less than a mile from the middle of our town. We have a major freeway just a couple of blocks away and yet just across the street from our cute little cottage we have an organic farm. Farmer John has about 2 acres of crops with some greenhouses and a house where he and his wife live. He sells his produce at a farmstand near the post office and at several farmer's markets in the area. We love having John and his farm as neighbors for many reasons but here is our favorite...

This is what we found on our front porch today when we came home from running our errands! Thank you Farmer John!

That's so awesome. Someone pointed out to me once that there was an organic farm there, which I thought was kind of cool to have in the hood.

Mom, That looks amazing! If you get any more and cant eat it you know who you can pass it to! I love you.

We call our garden a "Salsa" garden, everything you need to make great salsa.

I wish we could get fresh fruit to grow, but so far no luck.

You better stay on the good side of John!!! How sweet and I bet you are a great receiver and bet John gets something nice from you in return. I didnt notice a cross stitch from the shop, guess I will have to put on my glasses. Thanks again for visiting.

Davis County is a lovely place to live. Your new home sounds like its in a fun place. This is a great time of year for that fresh produce. Our garden is beginning to give gifts to us.

As to your question for me on my blog. I 100% recommend taking a class. Its better to have someone there to help and guide you. I still take classes and love learning new skills. If you ever have a question about quilts I'd love to answer or give an opinion.

Looks so good. We tried planting a garden this year and failed miserably, we'll try again next year. I'll have to check out that produce stand sometime.
