A new HOMEGROWN Life post from Danielle at Yellow Tree Farm:

"Invented before the turn of the twentieth century, I consider the Planet Jr. (and other similarly-styled wheel-hoes) to be one of the most revolutionary agricultural inventions in history besides the tractor."

John asks: "Has anyone recycled discarded produce from supermarkets and maybe even restaurants to use as a source of compost? I was considering this as one of our projects to develop the compost for our bucket brigade and maybe even resale as a fund raiser at our local farmers market and maybe if viable, as a small cottage industry for my NPO."

"It's important when collecting seaweed that you observe you state and local laws. There are many protected beaches that do not allow people to remove anything from the shore or water."

Thanks so much for this post - just what I've been looking for. Have a very small, undeveloped backyard in northern Nevada with even less money and energy to bring it into condition necessary to grow food. This looks great! Yes, much better than other plans that require electricity for pumps.

"If we don’t watch ourselves, we’ll fail to pause and experience one of the most beautiful and fulfilling times in this annual cycle of seasons we call a year: spring’s boom of wild edibles. At Yellabird Farm, we love our wild edibles. We love them so much we even harvest them for our customers at the Root Cellar and the Missouri Bounty Box. That’s right. We sell chickweed, henbit, dock, dandelion greens, wood sorrel and more right out of our fields and bottomland forests."

All things HOMEGROWN: growing, cooking, crafting, brewing, preserving, building, making and creating
Introduction

HOMEGROWN.ORG is an online community of people interested in all things HOMEGROWN: growing, cooking, crafting, brewing, preserving, building, making and creating. HOMEGROWN.org is a place where we can learn from each other, share our questions, and show off how we dig in the dirt, grow our own food, work with our hands, and cook and share our meals – all things that we call HOMEGROWN.

Farm Aid founded HOMEGROWN.org with the mission to create a place where our love for food and the land evolves, deepens, and becomes something more fulfilling. A place where we can hear and appreciate the bigger stories that our food has to share – and connect to the source of our food: the land and the grower: The family farm. Where we see the connections between good soil, good farmers, good taste, and good times. Where the source of our food doesn’t feel like a stranger, but a fun and friendly neighbor.

That’s the spirit of HOMEGROWN.org. A spirit that will mean more visits to the farmers markets, more backyard BBQs, more dirt under nails…more talking, touching, smelling, tasting. It will mean a more fulfilling life that people everywhere will come to call HOMEGROWN.
