Don’t get lost in the weeds

There’s a lot to learn about gardening, and it can feel overwhelming.

Fortunately, my motto is “Planted is better than perfect,” so when you’re here, don’t worry about doing the right thing.

Instead, find joy in the garden as you read, listen, and grow with Homegrown.

Let me help you

I know how to grow


  • 20+ years of experience – My first garden was on our 5-acre homestead when I was 13. I’m 39 now. That’s a lot of years in the garden.
  • Experience in different climates – I’m a retired military spouse. I’ve grown in the south, the PNW, and southern California. Heat, humidity, rain…I’ve seen it all!
  • Now on 2 acres – I am so thankful to have found a slice of land in Oregon. My garden experiments and ambitious plans can take shape here and I’ll share them all with YOU.
Oh hi! I’m Jessica

Let’s grow together!

Hello there, I’m Jessica, your fellow gardening enthusiast with a twist. Life can be a whirlwind of responsibilities, and I get it, but guess what?

The garden will always be there to give you a break and a moment to get your sh!t together.

Even when it’s the garden itself causing the overwhelm. Even when the to-do list seems neverending and time is short. And yes, even when the season isn’t going the way you’d planned.

Now, I’m here to help you find a balance between your hectic life and your garden dreams.

Together, we’ll figure out the art of planting at the perfect time, growing a garden that’s a haven for you, a home for bees and butterflies, and a place where your kids can learn to help in a way that doesn’t kill too many plants or spill too many seeds.

Let’s grow together and make your garden a thriving and joyful space.
