A REAL WORKHORSE: This week, HOMEGROWN chatted with new member Alexis, an equal-opportunity equine and vegetable lover living in Maine. We were intrigued by the mention of professional kitchens and bakeries in Alexis’s past, but nothing pricks up our ears like the declaration that someone wants to be a farmer. Get to know Alexis below and learn a little about her journey so far, then browse her photos. And, Alexis, we can’t wait to hear updates as you follow your path. We’re rooting for you!
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.)
