What kind of HOMEGROWN are you?
100% Homegrown
A bit about me:
4th Generation of a farming family. Homesteader working toward growing 90% of our food. Self-sufficiency is our goal for veggies, fruits, dairy and meat.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Spicy Tomato Basil soup with Sourdough croutons and a sprinkle of feta cheese on top. YUM!
Currently reading:
Top selling book of all time...the Bible.
Currently listening to:
Appalachian Mountain Dulcimer music
My latest DIY project:
Goat shelter from old pallets and left over roof trusses, raised garden beds from reclaimed lumber, trellis supports made from left over 2x2 pres. treated hand rail poles, building a wood floor in our picnic shelter using gravel and pallets...the list is endless!
How did you find HOMEGROWN.org?

Hi, Anita. 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—more on your growing … and maybe some photos of that goat shelter … and your hand rails … and pretty much anything you’ve got going, since it all sounds so good!—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 a question, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!

Anita: Thank YOU for your kind note—and for being here. You may have come across it already, but we've got a 1o1 on container gardening. And just a warning that I'll probably be pestering you about sharing some of your projects, too. Especially that goat shelter—so cool.
