Hi, Alexander. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content, etc.), and I'm a native Houstonian myself. I’m so glad you found us. We love dads who love good food! I hope you’ll find plenty of projects and ideas here to spur you on, and I hope you’ll be game for sharing some of your own, too—maybe something on your upcoming kid-friendly gardening endeavors—in our member blog, The Stew. Speaking of, if you haven’t come across it yet, we’ve got a newish 101 on gardening with kids. Elsewhere on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions to the site at the top of the homepage, and if you’ve ever got questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!
