Our blog will be hosting the Grow Your Own Roundup for April 2009. Don’t know what Grow Your Own is? Well, let me tell you.
Grow Your Own was created by Andrea of Andreas’ Recipes to showcase homegrown products. GYO is a roundup of recipes featuring ingredients that have been grown in your own garden, or foraged from your area. If you were given an ingredient that came from a friend’s garden, that counts as well.
These days, growing your own food is a great way to save money. It also is a way to ensure you’re getting the freshest, most healthy food available. You know exactly when and where your food comes from, as well as what went into it.
Now, I realize that most of us in the Northern Hemisphere are just coming out of Winter, so the ground hasn’t quite thawed out enough to grow food. But some of you are lucky enough to live in more temperate climates where it’s easier to grow food year-round. And, some of our readers come from the Southern Hemisphere, which is heading into Fall and all the abundant food that comes with it.
So, how about it?
Have you blogged about something in the month of April that features an ingredient that you grew yourself? Send me an email by April 30 to launate (at) gmail (dot) com with the following information:
