Welcome to Homegrown/Homemade, a video series from FineGardening.com and our sister site FineCooking.com. We're following a gardener (Danielle Sherry) and a cook (Sarah Breckenridge) as they plant, maintain, harvest, store, and prepare garden vegetables under the watchful eye of Juno, Sarah's inquisitive dog.

As new videos become available, we'll be posting links to them here. Click on the images or the titles in the box to see any or all the videos.
