What kind of HOMEGROWN are you?
Dirt Under My Fingernails City Slicker
Fill in the blank:
I'm your friendly HOMEGROWN flock tender. Got a question? I can help!
A bit about me:
Native Texan, longtime Chicagoan, now a proud Massachusette with a mean pecan pie recipe, a penchant for screen printing, a halfway decent backyard garden, and a totally pathetic mile run.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
An endive and romaine salad with carrots and cucumbers alongside a zucchini-squash-tomato-basil tart: a dinner that would have used a little of everything from my CSA if I hadn’t forgotten the garlic. (Note to self: Remember the garlic.)
Currently reading:
Gmail; The New York Times; Cook’s Illustrated; Texas Monthly; Wired; Rolling Stone; The Country of the Pointed Firs, by Sarah Orne Jewett; The Preservation Kitchen, by Paul Virant and Kate Leahy; clam shack reviews on Yelp; instructions for mesquite smoking brisket. Mmmm, brisket.
Currently listening to:
Dirty Projectors, Tune Yards, Beirut, and Willie. Always Willie.
My latest DIY project:
Screening outdoor movies in the yard—most recently Clue, on the patio, with a rope.
How did you find
It must have been fate.

    Hi Jennifer 

    Thanks for the welcome. Not many sites like this one here in Australia. Good to see what's going on in other gardens around the world.

    Thanks for the welcome Jennifer! I hope to learn alot from you folks and share what I can. I also hope this is the last ice/snow storm for DFW. I am so ready to be out there! Greenhouse is holding up well and protecting our decorative plants. I have a few sets of seedlings surviving in there as well: onions, garlic and romaine lettuce.
