What kind of HOMEGROWN are you?
Fill in the Blank
Fill in the blank:
Aspiring suburban homesteader
A bit about me:
Big garden this year taught me more about harvesting and preserving. Chicken coop and run almost ready. Still trying to master composting a mile up.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Autumn stew with homegrown tomatoes, eggplant, peppers and herbs and store bought onions, garlic and mushrooms. (baby steps, baby steps)...also made Jackapple cake from a recipe on Cold Antler Farm blog.
Currently reading:
Backyard Homestead
Currently listening to:
Hometown Tales, episode 268
My latest DIY project:
Chicken run fencing from chain link; now gotta plant chicken wire barriers under and above ground; we've got a wildlife refuge up the block with a pack of coyotes and wandering neighborhood dogs. Will need a pergola, too, on account of red-tailed hawks and great horned owls...
