The following 101, on how to make bitters—with a recipe for pine bitters—comes from HOMEGROWN’s flock tender, Jennifer, whose spirit of choice is gin. The name might have something to do with it. I know a fair amount about beer. That’s not…See More

Hi Jennifer! Thanks for the welcome. The laundry detergent works great. It smells a lot more like traditional detergent than I thought it would. I used Fels Naptha. I think once I go through the 6 bars I bought, (I got them upstate. I haven't been able to find it in NYC.) I might try a Dr. Bronner's bar for a lighter scent. I've been putting lavender oil on the dryer balls and the clothes come out nearly wrinkle free and smelling great!

Thanks for the welcome! I would love to share what I know and help others.

Thanks for the friendly welcome.  I've just tested out posting pictures using the "lookie what I grew" feature (nice!).  Is there a way to add embeds there?  If I had a YouTube video, for example -- it would stay on the YouTube site but be posted to your users.  Let me know.  Cheers,

Ah, nevermind... I just answered my own question -- you have a special section for posting videos or embedding videos.  Got it.  Thanks,
