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.

    Hello Jennifer, I am so glad to have found your site.  I have to tell you that I don't get any more housework done as I love reading all the comments and links.  Grin…I am sending family and friends your link.

    I live across Sheridan from Loyola University and yes .. The Blue Cheese burger is wonderful on the patio or by a fireplace in the darkened interior. My favourite place tho is Furama for Dim Sum

    Jennifer, I have no clue where to start.  I learned to tend the garden, water, weed, etc.. when I was a small child.  the same with just about everything else I learned to do.  I grew up in the foothills of the Applachians' and I always loved to be around the older folks and listen to their stories and songs.  I learned to make molasses and apple cider.. I learned to butcher and cure my own meats.  I can also grow my own sheep or goats. Shear them.. card and clean the wool and then spin it.. and dye it using naturals dyes.   I really don't know how much I do or don't know.. But I do have problems when it comes to some things.. like leggy plants.. I wish I had a south facing window like my grandma did!!
