Hi, Erika. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content), and I’m a native Houstonian myself. I’m so glad you found us! 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, in our member blog, The Stew. 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!
