A bit about me:
I am 27 years old started home gardening about 2 1/2 years ago. I was 350lbs and sick of eating unhealthy produce. I started growing plants on my balcony in San Diego with this cool new vertical garden that my Dad bought for me. I had never tried to grow my own food, but soon found out how easy it was and that i was great at it. Now i am a 150lbs lighter and much happier than I have ever been and its all thanks to homegrown foods. I would like to share how a person with only a Balcony or no greenspace can grow a substantial amount of food and quite fast.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Stir-fried Kale,mushrooms,tomatoes,squash,carrots, broccoli
with grilled Mahi-Mahi and Toasted Quinoa with a greek salad.
Currently reading:

Hi, Jason. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). Thanks so much for the pat on the back yesterday regarding my zucchini. It was a proud moment! I’m thrilled you’ve just joined the site and you’re already finding your way around. HOMEGROWN is meant to be a community for folks just like you and me—and, I hope, a good place for you to find some useful resources. I might pick your brain a bit in the future, too, on hydroponics, aquaponics, and vertical gardening, all things the HOMEGROWN flock would be super interested in. In the meantime, please don’t be shy about sharing pictures of your own gardening triumphs in the Hey, I Grew That! photo gallery and posting stories and other photos in our member blog, The Stew. You can always find the latest additions to the site at the very 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!
