Hi Elizabeth - welcome to HOMEGROWN! Your blog is wonderful! Your stories so engaging and the pictures (baby piglets - gah!!!) charming. Something that folks with blogs do here is repost their work as a member blog. It's a great way for us to get to know you and to build community. It's a pretty easy cut and paste. Let me know if you have any questions and enjoy the site!
