Cool Season Gardening

Cool Season GardeningAs far as I’m concerned, the longer I can grow and harvest my own food the better.  Last year I picked my last bowl of salad greens on December 14th .  My dinner that night was bittersweet…sweet because I was still eating something I grew but bitter because I knew it would be at least 3 months until I could start again. When I mentioned to my friends that I was eating my own greens that late in the year, they expressed pure disbelief.  What could possibly grow between now…See More

Hi, Amy. 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, your fellow Massachu-home-setters, through friends of Farm Aid! (Can you tell I just made that term up? I’m guessing it’s not going to go viral.) Since you’re a gardener, don’t be shy about sharing photos of your growing triumphs in the gallery we call Hey, I Grew That! And I bet I’m not the only one here who would love to see plans and photos of your outdoor kitchen; please consider keeping the HOMEGROWN community posted on that project via our member blog, The Stew. Elsewhere on the site, you can always find the latest additions at the very 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!
