Hi, Lisa. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here: site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content. And while I’m a native Texan now located in Massachusetts, I spent the last decade-plus in Chicago. Give it a hug for me! I’m so glad you found us, and I love your “a bit about me.” What a good reminder that we all embody so many things. 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 (*especially* photos of that outdoor table), in our member blog, The Stew. (Seriously. I can't wait to see that table.) 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!
