A bit about me:
We have 3 beautiful children in the beautiful woods of Southern Maine. We're renting a home right now and have thus far always been renters, but are CURRENTLY house hunting! YAY!

Because we've always rented, I had to learn the fine art of container gardening and making the most of the tiny patch of yard our landlord let me use for a raised bed. I can't WAIT to get our own place so I can REALLY garden the way I'd like to!
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Beef stew with home made bread
Currently reading:
I have to pick just one? Ok: Seed to Seed is on my table today :)
Currently listening to:
Wicca Radio on itunes internet radio...found under the category 'ambient'
My latest DIY project:
A make-shift barrier around the computer main components to keep toddlers from pressing buttons and pulling on wires. It consisted of cleverly cutting and bending a cardboard box to wrap around the area in question, with high flaps for adult to stick their hands up, over, and then into if a button needs pressing. Free materials, and it works like a charm!

Hi Val! Welcome to Homegrown.org!  How much snow have you gotten in Southern Maine this winter? It seems like we'll never see Spring at this rate, but at least its nice to look at!
