Even in January, Farmer Les gets up before the crack of dawn—or at least he did today to meet us online for an early morning getting-to-know-you chat. We talked to the Washington State apple and garlic grower about how farming changed his life, his plans for 2013, and what winter means on Jones Creek Farms. HOMEGROWN, meet new member Les. Les, meet HOMEGROWN.
What is Meet Your Neighbors? Most of us spend a fair amount of time tending our online gardens, but it’s easy to forget there’s a real person behind every quiche recipe, chicken inquiry, and hoophouse design here on HOMEGROWN. Well, nuts to that! MYN gives us a chance to meet over the back fence and shake hands. (Or maybe hug? We’re huggers. But no pressure.)
