It was another wonderful week of HOMEGROWN Fair submissions. They've been fantastic so far - it's hard to pick just one winner each week! We love taking a peek into the backyards, gardens, and kitchens of HOMEGROWNers; thanks for sharing.
Congratulations to Brooke and her lovely backyard chickens, winners of Week 2 of the HOMEGROWN Fair. We loved the photos of your "girls" and the story about their snowy adventures!
Here are some other highlights from the past week of submissions. Be sure to check them out!
Jody shared her prize-winning photo of her son, Jacob, at a local farmers' market. Congratulations!
Rachel uploaded photos and a video of her Blue Slate turkeys - check out Hank the Tank!
Sara wrote a beautiful post "On Food, Family, and Preservation": "And that’s why we bother with preserving food and cooking meals – because food sustains us and comforts us and brings us together." Well said, Sara.
Jay posted a recipe for his sweet potato enchiladas. YUM!
Aliza submitted photos of her American Chinchilla rabbit kits - adorable little fuzzballs!
Simona shared her English-style coulommiers - her cheese looks delicious, as always.
Nicole uploaded photos of her bountiful hops harvest (and a hornet's nest) - I hope to see them post-brewed!
These submissions will be included in our End-of-Season Fair recap, and will be contenders for the overall "Best-in-Show" judging on November 30, 2011.
