FAIRE TRADE: HOMEGROWN met brand new member Jess last weekend at Maker Faire Bay Area, where she had us at hello. Stylish, friendly, inquisitive, and a windowsill homesteader? What’s not to like?! We pounced on Jess like a bee on pollen, and she agreed to kick off Memorial Day weekend with the getting-to-know-you chat that follows below. Thanks so much, Jess. It’s awfully good to have you here on HOMEGROWN, and we hope you’ll keep us posted as all of your impending changes continue to unfold. In the meantime, happy long weekend, everyone!
What is Meet Your Neighbors? Most of us spend a fair amount of time tending our online gardens, but it’s easy to forget there’s a real person behind every quiche recipe, chicken inquiry, and hoophouse design here on HOMEGROWN. Well, nuts to that! MYN gives us a chance to meet over the back fence and shake hands. (Or maybe hug? We’re huggers. But no pressure.)
