Remember the Michigan Mitten…


Katie stayed for a couple of weeks and did a great job in both the tunnel and the garden so that they were perfectly prepared for the late planting of vegetables. She painted the stables and did various jobs about the place.  She was fun to have around and we had some really good chats.  Glad to know there is a good deli to visit “Essence on Maine” Clarkson, Michigan.  Seems her whole family are involved and this is one of the recipes.

An interesting blog about Katies stay at East Reen:
