MOTHER OF ALL GARDENERS: If anyone deserves a wholehearted “Happy Mother’s Day!” it’s Charlotte, a newish HOMEGROWN member from upstate New York, not far from the banks of Lake Ontario, and the mom of a blended family of nine. We’ve been drooling over photos of Charlotte’s garden-to-be all spring, from her first sprouts, to her impressive seedling spread, to her greenhouse made from recycled windows. We’re thrilled to benefit from her maternal and botanical wisdom. Happy Mom’s Day, Charlotte.
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.)
