See this video by Chris, it might help http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_tAyUrfKsk
I would personally use custom field for this. Then in the home section, I would use a filter to only display certain amount of text from the excerpt. You would also need to create two separate templates files home.php and blog.php (whatever the template is for blog posts).
Hope that helps,
