What kind of HOMEGROWN are you?
Earth Mama, Dirt Under My Fingernails City Slicker, 100% Homegrown, Fill in the Blank
Fill in the blank:
A blend of city and country, I guess?
A bit about me:
I grew up in Chicago, IL and I now live on an 80 acre farm in Warren, IN that has been in the family for three generations. I do miss the big city life and the things to do and I do love to grow fruit, veggies and flowers. Both environments their advantages and disadvantages. I have recently become more interested in growing food and have planted more in my garden than ever. My mom's cousin farms our land on cash renting. I am still trying to figure out which aspect of the farming and food growing to focus on. Please give me any suggestions you may have.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Moussaka (a Greek casserole), home made chicken noodles, and lots and lots and lots and LOTS of canning.
Currently reading:
Ball Blue book of canning and whatever I grab.
Currently listening to:
I listen to just about anything.
My latest DIY project:
I am thinking about adding a few raised beds to grow herbs. They tend to be easier to take care of in beds rather than the main garden. I also am building owl houses to attract owls. I would like to encourage raptors on my property to take care of the pesky rabbits and groundhogs.
