Exciting Announcement About Our Upcoming iOS/Android Mobile App!

One of the hardest aspects of growing food is keeping up with all the various pieces of information for each plant. Each vegetable has its own set of requirements for all sorts of things such as how close together you plant each one, how much water and sunlight they receive, fertilizing requirements and a whole host of other stuff. I often felt lost and overwhelmed when I started and it took a few seasons for […]

How to Make EASY DIY Blender Waffles and Freeze Them for Busy Mornings

Waffles are always a hit in our family for more than just a breakfast food! Whenever I make these waffles in the blender, I always make extra to freeze so we can have fast breakfasts in the mornings before school. A quick toast in the toaster and you have your own “eggo” waffle! This recipe is super easy to make and very quick with minimal cleanup since you are only using the blender.

Who We Are

Hi! We’re Dale & Carrie Spoonemore and we decided in spring of 2015 that we wanted to start growing most of the vegetables our family of 6 eats. It’s been an incredible journey and we’ve learned a lot along the way. We want to share what we’ve learned and show how we transformed our backyard from an urban lawn into a sustainable and efficient organic food farm. Growing your own food doesn’t have to be difficult and we’re here to show how you can grow your own organic produce economically, efficiently, and sustainably. Click here to read more about how we did it all!

Why We Grow

We originally wanted to start growing our own food so we could eat healthier and save money. Dale’s mission to defeat anxiety and depression is another large reason why we got started. However, we quickly discovered there are many more benefits. We’ve found that the food that comes out of our garden tastes better than what we typically find in the grocery store! We also love being able to walk outside and harvest dinner each night. We’ve found that we eat much healthier when we have a constant supply of organic vegetables coming right from our own backyard. 

What We’re Doing

We’re here to show you that it isn’t difficult to start growing your own food. Here’s a blog post that explains how we decided to start From Seed to Spoon. Check out our  blog  and see what we’re growing, how we’re preparing it, and how we’re preserving it for future use. Watch our  videos  to see how we’ve transformed our backyard into a food farm and learn how you can too!
