Hi, Leonard. 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! I’m hoping to go to NS this summer myself! Just curious: What are you growing and selling? I hope you’ll find plenty of projects and ideas here to spur you on, and I hope you’ll be game for sharing some of your own, too—maybe that fish chowder recipe (or as we say in Massachusetts, “chowdah”)—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!

Hi, Leonard. Thanks so much for the kind note and the info on your operation—and for the offer of a place to stay. I'll definitely give a shout if we head up north this summer, if not to take advantage of your hospitality, at least to meet over a coffee. I did check out your Facebook page and love the photo of the low tunnels buried (but roof cleared!) in the snow. Just a warning that I'll probably be looking for more ways to broadcast your experience and know-how to the rest of the HOMEGROWN community, which just means I'll be pestering you further. In the meantime, though, really, really glad you're here.
