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.

It must have been fate.

    Thank you for the welcome. So happy I found your page! And yes the town I live in is really named "Homestead", it's a small but growing city in the very southernmost east coast of Florida, that used to be mainly all farmland. The farmland is slowly disappearing unfortunately, but still enough farmland around to make me feel like I don't live 30 minutes outside Miami. Again, thanks for the welcome, can't wait to dive in!

    Thank you for the welcome! 

    We got to our new home  2 weeks ago this Sunday evening.  From almost 3 decades in North Texas to West of The Divide is a pretty big jump.  Am beginning to come out of the shock.  But,  many happenings prior to intense no sleep packing time modules to  the actual travel in which I refused to sleep and tried to not even close my eyes because I wanted to take it all in....////I have little or vague recollection of most everything except what transpired between me and my kiddos.  So, I am going to get back into this.  But, it's gonna take some time.   Still learning my way around town and still unpacking and nursing one of our pets that did not handle the transition all that well.  Thank goodness for the balance between medical and herbal and homeopathic! 

    Oh!  Received today our Farm Aid Red Bandanas !!!!   Got mine on now! 

    I will stay connected - just gonna be a bit slow at first.

    So very grateful for being a part of this.

    Much Care,

    Julia Barnett
