Newbies - Just starting out

A place for those of us who are just dipping our toes into Homegrown living. Maybe we're looking to change how we buy our food, what we buy...Maybe we've started our first garden and have questions. If you're green, this is the place for you!

A Letter From My Farmer - It's Spring!

It was so nice to be able to picture the beginnings of the food I will be eating this summer, and what farmer Steve is up to as the ground awakens again. I thought I would share it with you, too!

An example of my CSA share - can't wait!!

Hello all!

An Ode To The Casserole

This less-than-wintry winter we’re having here in New England has got me thinking about how to fake winter – at least the indoors part – with warming, savory foods.  Part of the fun of winter is holing up inside, keeping cozy, and cooking a pot of something good. Casseroles are something good. Retro in style, usually creamy and easily portable (if one chose to leave…

Chicken Soup With Love <3

We held a Soup Swap this weekend and now we have a good stockpile of yummy homemade soups, made by friends, to get us through the winter!

Thank you Cornelia for your kind words!  I put a lot of effort into Back to the Basics! and I appreciate the comments.

Hey Cornelia,

I was simply inviting people to a place that hand cooks each meal and treats their visitors to free music and art as part of the whole experience of sharing food music and art, not a plug for us since we play for free.  We play there because we believe in their philosophy of creating good wholesome food with a dose of good wholesome art. I have never made a penny off of any of my music, to date it has been donated to support food pantries and soldiers who have been horribly wounded in wars that nobody cares about. I hope that this explains my open invitation to share my music with all of your members and apologize if you feel used or spammed.

Home Grown is awesome!!!!

Thanks for the welcome! I do already have four hens, so I immediately checked out and joined the Backyard chickens group. When I wanted to come back and check out homegrown.org a little further, I forgot that it was .org... Homegrown.com is definitely NOT about veggies.

Yes! I made it for a friend's son. Totally hilarious!

Hey Cornelia,

Thanks for being a friend! I just love this site I am so glad I found it that I'm telling all of my homegrown friends about it. If you get a chance stop by and give my videos a listen, hope you like them too.
