Some exciting news: Announcing Homesweet Homegrown Hot Sauces on Kickstarter!!

Hey guys!

Hope you are having a great year and getting ready to grow all sorts of fun stuff in your garden! We are gearing up for a new season and have some exciting news----we just launched a new kickstarter to help raise funds to start the first homegrown hot sauce, using all natural, heirloom ingredients with no GMOs, fake colors or chemicals (we even use chia seeds!). We have been perfecting our three signature flavors---Orange Crush, Aramingo, and the super hot Punch Drunk (featuring ghost peppers, guinness and our own smoked garlic) and are trying to raise funds to expand our pepper field this year!

We have plenty of great rewards to give away this time, including bottles of our three hot sauces, along with homegrown smoked ghost peppers, signed copies of Homesweet Homegrown, and even the chance to have a kickass homegrown brunch for you and your friends in our field. Check it out here: and thanks for spreading the word;) You guys rock---thank you again for all of your support in kicking off our book tour last year, now we are trying to keep the homegrown movement growing!

hey guys! 

Breaking news: Homesweet Homegrown was picked by Boovabox for a limited edition run of these snazzy milk crate box covers! It features the logo from our book and our cute little garden knome, all designed by HSHG illustrator Jen Biggs. They are great for picking up veggies from the community garden or farmer's market, are totally waterproof, and come in all sorts of cool designs. Some are even made out of recycled billboards!
