Worried the season is too far gone?

It’s not too late to start a summer garden!

Welcome to Homegrown Food and Flowers!

This is a project started out of a love for gardening and making a home wherever you are. As a military wife, I often have to leave my garden behind and start over again somewhere new. Each time I start a new garden, I learn something new about the plants I am growing and the space I am working with.

This has helped me learn the basics of gardening over and over again, which I hope to pass on to you with this blog.

My mission with Homegrown Food and Flowers is to help teach people how to garden, no matter where they are. Whether you have an acre of land or a window box, there is room to garden and grow your own food and flowers.

Hi, I’m Jessica!

I’ve been a home gardener for more than 20 years, and I love it! It’s so rewarding to grow your own food and then eat it – especially when you know where it came from.

I’m also a mother of two (and a furbaby) and wife to a US Marine. I love spending time with my family, and we enjoy being outdoors as much as possible.

We are currently stationed in California, but I’ve also lived and gardened in Washington state and South Carolina, so I’ve experienced many different climates and growing seasons, which has given me a well-rounded knowledge of gardening.

I love being outside and getting my hands dirty, and I love to share what I’ve learned over the years with others.
