Corn is what the midwest does, but only in Michigan will you find cornfields as neatly kept as a park. Tidy Michiganders keep neatly trimmed edges on this cornfield just outside of Three Rivers.

Hops, fresh-picked from our giant hop-vine and drying in a basket. Now to find a beer maker.

Upcycled on Johnnycake

A newly built feed store in the strip-mall section on the west side of Three Rivers was the location Saturday for Up-Cycled Pets' "meet and greet", allowing folks to see the adoptable pets. The SPCA also participated.

The new store is on a new street which they have named "Johnnycake Lane", a sentimental nod to the old Johnnycake School, torn down when the Wal-Mart went in a few years ago. The feed store is called "Diamond Creek" and despite it having the big plastic chain-store type sign, a chain-store name (there is no Diamond Creek around here) and the general chain-store look, it seems to be locally owned. And it was nice of them to remember Johnnycake.
