"I found the pasture management stuff surprisingly technical.  And a little dull.  I think my eyes glazed over a bit, but possibly 'cause it doesn't apply much to my situation.  I just read the e-book on pastured chickens and…"

"Ahhhh.  Affirmation.  Thank you.  I needed that.  i.e. the tree planting/grass and the pruning thing.  I vaguely thought those things but I needed someone else to firm it up.  We got a little reprieve on the trees,…"

"I had similar feelings when I started this chapter:  finally, he's talking to me!   The house design stuff was interesting for me in that my house is 130+ years old.  I don't believe the insulation is all that great any…"

Jennifer Thompson replied to Calamity Jane's discussion 'earthworks' in the group Perma-Curious
"I found this chapter to be enjoyable (and not so intense!).   My parents built a new house about 5 years ago on a site that had been a pasture for years and years, then was left to become very overgrown.  When they were ready to build,…"

Hi, Jennifer. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, too, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). I’m so glad you made your way back to us—and just in time to join Perma-Curious! Seems like that group is going to be a fabulous, if serious, undertaking. Elsewhere on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions to the site at the top of the homepage, and if you’ve ever got questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home! And please drink a Capital for me! After more than a decade in Chicago, I moved to New England earlier this year, and while I love it here, I do miss all of my Midwest beers!
