A First Attempt at Making Jam

I've been in my house for thirteen years and the loquat tree in my front yard has never produced anywhere near the volume of fruit it's providing this spring.  I have no idea why this is the case but for the past few months I've had to sweep up smashed fruit from my driveway every day.  The volume far exceeds what we can consume and informing the neighbors that they…

Hi, Bill. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I’m the flock tender here: site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content. I’m so glad you found us. I hope you’ll turn up plenty of projects and ideas here to spur you on, and I hope you’ll be game for sharing some of your own, too, in our member blog, The Stew. On that note, I’ve been looking for someone to write a HOMEGROWN 101 on growing pumpkins for ages. Any chance I could convince you? Let’s chat!

I’m also asking everybody, new members and old, to take a few minutes and fill out a survey on HOMEGROWN. By doing so, you’ll help make the site better and our community stronger—and you might even score free stuff.

Elsewhere on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions to the site at the top of the homepage, and if you ever need help finding your way around, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!

Hi, Bill. Thanks for the quick response! I don't know what sounds better: pumpkin fondue or pumpkin beer. How lucky are you that you have both! I can say right now that I'll absolutely still be interested in enlisting you to write a Growing Pumpkins 1o1 come June or July. I'm making a note to myself right now so that I don't forget to check in with you then. In the meantime, I hope I see you around here on HOMEGROWN. Please don't be shy about sharing your projects. (If you make pumpkin beer in the fall, I can't help but wonder what you're brewing now!)
