Instagram post 17931091810722305 One of my favorite stops on The Gardener Wife's Grand Garden Show was our visit to Fort Michilimackinac in Mackinac City. Even though the day was cold and rainy, I did not want to miss coming here again. I love how the historical interpreters have planted gardens like those that the soldiers and other residents had in colonial times, and they use the harvests in their cooking demonstrations. They tend those gardens with the methods and tools that would have been used in the 1800s. I can relate to this very well because I use organic methods in my own kitchen garden.

Instagram post 18094757119020831 My moment with Laura from Garden Answer.  We’ll many of you are familiar with Laura and Aaron from YouTube’s Garden Answer, and if you’re not, you have a wonderful adventure in gardening to discover.  Laura was one of the speakers at the Grand Garden Show and the one I most looked forward to hearing.  I had promised myself that I wouldn’t be a groupie and gush all over her, but by chance, I had a “Sleepless in Seattle” moment when I entered the theatre and turned to find Laura next to me; the only thing I could think to say was “hello”, to which she responded “hello”. I’m good with that🙃#grandgardenshow #mackinacisland

Instagram post 17960181991461905 Here are more highlights from The Gardener Wife's Grand Garden Show. These are gardens that we saw as we walked around the island. Again, I recognized several from the garden walks that we took when we came here for the provenwinners Grand Garden Show, three and five years ago. Besides walking up and down the main downtown area, my husband and I toured several historic places, such as Fort Mackinac, the Biddle House, and the  art museum housed in the Indian Dormitory.

Instagram post 18164855587093830 My husband and I started our 30th Anniversary Extravaganza Trip & The Gardener Wife #grandgardenshow with two nights at GoldberryWoods —the perfect place for folks who love fresh homegrown food!

The extent and variety of the garden here is amazing. It's a microfarm where they're growing everything they possibly can in Michigan soil.  They're currently harvesting blueberries and peaches, as well as all the summer veggies. I especially loved the espaliered apple trees by the main entrance to the garden. And I was super impressed by the huge Chicago Hardy fig trees that overwintered in the ground outdoors, surrounded with several kinds of protective layers, so they survived with no dieback.

Our breakfasts were fabulous! Julie, the innkeeper/gardener, uses their harvests year round to make delectable farm-to-table meals for guests staying in the inn and cottages. I finally got my first taste of cucamelons! (I’m still waiting for mine at home to start producing fruit.)

Besides the gardens, there’s also a pool and hottub, a play area for the kids (next to the chickens and ducks), and a market stand housed in a vintage trailer. There are trails for hiking and biking, as well as a lovely beach nearby. This charming B&B has something for everyone, and I highly recommend it.

Except for all of the hard work involved, Julie is living my dream life!😂 What would be your favorite part of a stay here?

This is my Day 22  entry, "Small Business,” for the #onmyhomestead August Photo Challenge, held by saraonthefarm and frederickfamilyacre 📷.

Instagram post 17874996005151021 Anyone who thinks that gardening begins in the spring and ends in the fall is missing the best part of the whole year. For gardening, begins in January, with the dream. - Josephine Nuese

We agree 100% although we would amend the last sentence to include "and all the planning to make the dream a reality!" 🙂

January may be slow for the actual planting of container gardens, but let me tell you, we are so busy planning! We are ordering gorgeous flowers and plants for the upcoming spring planting season and researching new varieties to surprise and delight our clients. 

Speaking of delights, we have been dreaming of going to the provenwinners Grand Garden Show at the grandhotelmichigan on Mackinac Island, Michigan for years and were planning to go this past summer. Sadly this bucket list item was postponed due to covid, but we are so excited for the day it will happen. We absolutely love garden tours and Mackinac Island in the summer looks dreamy. Has anyone been to the Grand Garden Show and is it fabulous? Do tell!
