What kind of HOMEGROWN are you?

Life long farmer
A bit about me:
I grew up on a 50 cow dairy farm. Milked cows, slopped the hogs, fed the chickens and gathered the eggs. We always had a big garden and raised all our own meat. Except for the fish that we caught in the river. The store was there to by staple goods like salt and flour. Now I raise a 2 acre garden. I sell through CSA, farmers markets, and a farm stand at the house.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
We hardly ever eat out. But a roasted pork chop dinner, cooked like a pot roast. This dinner was made with potatoes, carrots, parsnips, onions, garlic, fresh thyme, fresh oregano, and fresh parsley. And of course the pork chops.

Hi, Jay. 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—more about what you’re growing for CSA and market, please, and maybe some photos and a description of that new greenhouse—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!
