Myrtle Grove Produce comes to Churchill Market

What strikes the people strolling around the Churchill Market is the fresh looking openness of the Myrtle Grove Produce on display.  Even the air around the vegetables for sale has a crispness about attached.  Right away the market goers sense there is a fair deal and honesty with purchases from Kory. All in all this makes sense as the produce on display is literally from the the Myrtle Grove farms gates.

Myrtle Grove produce comes from the Parent business of Myrtle Grove Farms which are  based in the Strzelecki Rangers.

Kory is one of the of farming family generations associated with Myrtle Grove properties.

The story behind the why bring to market is as follows

Myrtle Grove Produce : Pumpkin Pieces for purchase

A few years ago one of the brothers decided to grow pumpkins. Where else but on the family farm. The soil and conditions were just right.

Soon a glut of pumpkins presented themselves. The challenge was what do you do with an overabundance of pumpkins. There is only a certain amount of pumpkin recipes a family freezer can hold. Pumpkin seeds roasted. Then again planting them for a new field of pumpkins might have lead to trouble. So too could leaving them out there to attract unwanted wildlife.

That was the beginning of Myrtle Grove Produce

When telling the “Why” of being at the market family member Kory stated that when this challenge was stated one brother said to the avid pumpkin grower… ” I own the land. Your problem”.

Wholesalers were approached. No luck there. Capciums from Mertyl Grove Produce So to the different farmers markets the family

went. That was 2009. The rest as they say is now becoming a future with a three generation past.

Now attending these farmers markets:


Leaving the display behind you are aware that anything created for your family that was purchased from Kory has a definite possibility of presenting well while tasting really great.

Mardi Gras Photos

In this post Susan explores why wearing a mental uniform hepes the integration of further creativity to come through onto the things she is doing in her online  productivity.  With a little lateral thinking, shear gusto and a lot of creative thinking , upskilling, hard work, persistence and clicking away at the camera, the knowledge that she was not in a comfort zone fell away,  Task complete and everyone else went into the festival propper.

Going out into the Maffra community, glasses on and camera in hand was like wearing a uniform.  A mental uniform that enabled myself to have a way to engage and respond to people lining the road where the Maffra Mardi Gras was happening.

So I took photos at the Mardi Gras . From there used an online service to run these together and make a small video clip.

That action gave me the confidence to seriously shot videos for what turned out from October through to March. At a rate of one and a half a day. The thing is what do I now do with them all now. Most are on YouTube, Vimeo or DailyMotion just to get them off my computer… onto CD or USB and also into the cloud.

Now there is further training in the ‘What do I do with them” in order to

    add to
    and utilize,
    trim down
    and see what can happen with this tool or that one.

That is when I have finished the new #micro-educational training
then the Elite training. Well I wanted the knowledge and this sure is throwing it at me! Kind like a starving book worm in the old fashioned library!!

    Catch up on the video and actually even right posts,
    spread the videos around.
    and respond to emails
    while making autoresponder messages.

The dream was to create a footprint that would become part of the tag team agency.

 To truly get the hang of your own dream I found I needed help.  To reach out to people I could trust.  Who were more than willing to show me what to do, or to let me know of a training available they had attended.

That community seen had been developed and they were now assisting me to sort out the bigger picture.  Helping to turn the smaller steps like being in a crowd behind the camera.  The realisation that with the camera came security.  It takes a few tries before the actions were right and feeling comfortable. That’s because there was a lot of external things to comprehend.  Other integrating bits to deal with as the growing capabilities became a labour of love.

The changers came through with the “I have done this [part] already” recognition.  Once all the parts came together things and approaches to those things that need action changed.

Who are you?

So now comes the question of Who are you?

How will you even find out? Can you afford not to find out before you race ahead or go forward step by step as you find out?

People are often hung up on results. There is a ‘needs to be shown you are improving, or not’ attitude influencing decisions.The foundations of which are like a jelly that covers rocks.  You will either bounce, sink in or hit rock bottom and go ouch.

Tamper with this bit a little more and tinker with that bell until the sounds resonate within the empty space getting the sound “just right”.

Know the feeling of getting the internal spaces ready for the incoming crowd. Then realising you have not got the floor down, or the back wall up of the area the crowd are expected to be entertained within? Or the food prepared and kitchen clean. The front lawn or garden beds and pot plants watered, plucked free of weeds. The procrastination list will just keep going on. Continuously. Just keep adding to it and that real you will not really be found.

Why do I know this?

It’s a long story so I will shorten it for you. The easiest way to explain it is for you to experience something. So I am going to introduce you to Jay and Stuart. That is, when you trust me.

If you are already trusting me then let me know.

There is no reason to go split testing anything.

You either do offer the trust or reserve the right to think about it some more. Simple as that.

Me. And my invitation.

When I was first invited to have a look at this private community I trusted the person who sent me the invitation. Actually I still do trust that person.

What I did not do was trust within myself that what I was seeing I understood. Effectively turning something simple and just as I found it, into a major time consuming jigsaw puzzle.

Life had been good, then hard as it progressed on into a dire category. There must be something, somewhere that would tell me so.

There was.

Two merging colours blending into and through different parts of the same level.

1) For me it was the gut feeling. A faith of sorts as I had seen, asked, and seen again. Was it still too good to be true? It was and still is. Was I going to be true to what I had been shown though? Do not get me wrong… all this sorting out and stuff. Yeah there were some rough patches. There was slippery ground and I have had to learn to move fast as overwhelm avalanches threatened.

2) That ingredient was called trust. Trust within myself. For those who are familiar with my story of how and why they understood. Maybe did not like what they saw, as just finding who I was, where I came from was difficult for them to do. Essentially having no memory from a truck impact does that to people. The support networks, while being amazing, also were a stranglehold on the me under there.

If you know anything about many of the affiliate marketers they are professionals who will either rely on gut feeling or will totally go nuts with split testing to the ‘inth’ degree and sometimes more. People fall into these two categories as well.

Which are you?

With a new sense of purpose in your life are you a do or dare personality? We will find out soon.  And you already have your answer.
