Hear Me Talk About Gardening, Anxiety, Mindfulness, From Seed to Spoon, & More on the “A Sustainable Mind” Podcast

I had the pleasure of joining Marjorie from the “A Sustainable Mind” podcast to chat a few weeks back. You can hear our conversation about what led to us growing food and why we built our app at the link below. We also talked quite a bit about anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and how the battle against them is all related to why grow food & help others do the same.

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!

& more!

We wanted a place where we could blog about some of the ways we try to live a more natural and frugal lifestyle and the "& more!" section was born out of that idea. This is where we'll talk about how we make our own household products, how we manage cloth diapers, and other topics related to how we live.

Brooklyn and Daphney: The Cooking Bakers

Back in 2014, Brooklyn and Daphney were obsessed with The Kids Baking Championship show and they wanted to start recording shows of their own. We did a few of them and eventually, they lost interest and moved on to something else. They’ve been wanting to record more videos again and I stumbled on some of their videos the other day. I thought they’d fit in well with From Seed to Spoon and wanted to share. Originally […]

DIY Tick & Mosquito Prevention

If you’re anything like me, the thought of ticks makes my skin crawl. Unfortunately, it’s something we have to live with, especially in our situation when we are outside so often and go camping frequently. After a day of removing nearly 20 ticks from our small 10 pound dog (which led me to having nightmares all night), you could say that I was motivated to find a solution! We have experimented and researched all kinds […]
