Welcome back, Pirate Jeni. Jennifer, the flock tender, here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). I was lucky enough to spend this past Saturday working the HOMEGROWN Skills Tent with some of your From Scratch Club sistren at Farm Aid 2013. What a lovely crew! I hope you’ll turn up plenty of useful tips and ideas here to spur you on, and I hope you’ll be game for sharing some of your own, too—maybe some photos of that dulcimer carrying case, pretty please—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 a question, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home.
