Hi, John. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). I’m so glad you found us—and via Farm Aid, no less! Thanks so much for sharing the link to your podcasts; can’t wait to give them a listen. And be prepared for me pestering you about sharing some of what you know here on HOMEGROWN; I’m not above twisting the arm of brand new members. Speaking of, I hope you’ll find plenty of projects and ideas here to spur you on, and I hope you’ll be game for spreading the word about some of yours, too, in our member blog, The Stew. 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!
