Making plans with my husband to move from our small town to the mini organic farm we started last year. We hope to be in residence by the end of 2013. So far we have a small orchard, brambles, mushrooms & about 1/2 to 3/4 acre in seasonal vegetables. At 60 years of age, I am finally back to my childhood love - digging in the dirt!
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
"Freezer Soup": All of our leftover veggies & meat go into a container in the freezer. When it is full, it is time to make yummy soup. I add homemade chicken or beef stock, homegrown & canned tomatoes, maybe some dried veggies & herbs from the garden. Every pot is different and it is one of our favorite meal. Just add some good bread.
Making Your Small Farm Profitable, Macher

Ha, I wish! No time right now. Whatever is on the radio.
Hi, Vicki. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). So glad you found us! Freezer soup must be on folks’ brains this week. Another HOMEGROWN newbie, Cynthia, just posted her recipe for what she calls “trash chili.” If you haven’t seen it, check it out—and please feel free to add a comment about your own version! And congrats on the new farm! You’ll have to keep the HOMEGROWN crowd posted on the process of settling in; one good way to do so is by posting to our member blog, The Stew. And a quick question: What are fire bowls? Do tell!
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, Vicki! Ah, I see. The fire bowls sound fantastic. Is there any chance I could twist your arm into guest-writing a 101 on how you make them? They do sound like excellent gifts, and with the holidays coming up, I bet a bunch of your fellow HOMEGROWN members would be interested. Let me know, and we can discuss from there!
