Salut, Jean Pierre. Bienvenue à 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—and I’m amazed by how many projects you’ve got going, not even counting the kids! It sounds like you stay very busy—but with such fantastic outcomes. The greenhouse, not to mention the leg of lamb, sound incredibly impressive. If you’re game for doing so, I hope you'll share photos or stories of your farm 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!
