Introducing Our New FREE Mobile App for Gardeners!

  • Do you want to grow food, but you aren't sure how?
  • Have you tried growing food in the past, but never could keep track of what to plant, when to plant it, and how to take care of it?
  • Did pests ruin your garden and you weren’t sure what to do about it?

If any of these issues sound familiar, then our FREE iOS or Android App is for you!

We’re proud to announce that the first version of our mobile app that helps people grow food is now available in the iTunes App Store and the Google Play Store! This first release will allow you to learn about how to grow, harvest, and prepare over 40 different foods!

The From Seed to Spoon Growing Guide mobile app guides you through planting, growing, harvesting, and preparing 40+ vegetables and herbs with many more coming soon. We’ll guide you through all aspects of growing as well as help you plan out your garden by providing information about which companion plants grow best next to each plant. You can also view which pests attack each plant and read about how to deal with them organically!

This is just the beginning for us. We have a lot of big ideas about how we can help make the food growing process easier for anyone that wants to grow. We’re excited to release our first version and would love to hear any feedback you have on how we can make things better!

Why is it free?

Our goal has always been to make an impact on the world by helping people learn how to garden on their own.  Charging for this app would add a barrier between you and the help.  Thanks to your generosity, supporting us by visiting our site, downloading, reviewing, and sharing our app, and using our Amazon affiliate links, we do not have to charge, so we are not going to!

OKC Home & Garden Show: What I Learned From Talking to People About Growing Food

We had a lot of fun at the OKC Home & Garden show last weekend! We went there to help spread the word about the app, to get kids interested in gardening, and to help inspire people to start growing food. I had A LOT of conversations about growing food and began to notice a common theme among the topics. I have this huge list of features I want to add to our mobile app but I’ve struggled to decide what to work on first. Last weekend clarified the biggest challenges facing new gardeners and helped me focus my attention on the most important problems. Here’s what I learned from talking to people for 30 hours straight this weekend about growing food and the challenges they face.

I had the privilege of speaking with the OKC-Sharp developer meetup group in Oklahoma City this week and talking about why and how I learned to code in order to build our mobile app. I talk about how I learned to code and share tips for others that want to learn. This talk is geared towards software developers but there should be lessons I talk about that apply to all areas of learning.

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!
