Raised Bed Gardener
A bit about me:
I live in 'very' northern Maine (right up against Canada). During my childhood, my parents attempted to live off the land for a while, but without 'success.' Now, in my late twenties, I am trying to reclaim their original goals and get back to the basics: local food, home cooking, and simple living.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
I'm more of a baker, so I'd have to say:
Peanut Butter Cookies (my great-grandmother's recipe)
Currently reading:
Food Politics
Currently listening to:
The Ghost of Paul Revere : "San Antone"
(The Ghost is a holler folk band out of Portland, Maine.)
My latest DIY project:
ripping off wallpaper in my bathroom and replacing it with a paint called "Foggy Mirror!
How did you find HOMEGROWN.org?

Hi, Jenna. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content), and I can’t wait to check out The Ghost of Paul Revere.
