Hi, fellow gardener!

My name is Jessica, and I’m so happy to meet you here on Homegrown!

I’m a passionate gardener, wife to a US Marine, mama of two wild, dirt-loving kids, and dog-mama of two mutts. I’ve grown my own vegetables and herbs for years, and have recently ventured into growing cut flowers, as well. After all, how cheerful is a fresh vase of flowers on the kitchen counter?

I am also an aspiring farmer-florist. This means not only growing flowers on my farm but also creating arrangements with them. I hope to provide fresh, sustainably grown bouquets to my community through the farmer’s market, bouquet subscriptions, and by getting involved with local events.

I’ve recently completed a flower farming course from the well-respected Liza Mason Ziegler at The Gardener’s Workshop to help me get started, and I’ve learned so much.

Progressing from a backyard flower grower to a full-fledged cut flower farmer will take lots of work and learning, and I hope you’ll join me along the way.

Not sure how to get started with flowers?
