With over 40 entries from 8 different countries around the world, this month’s “Grow Your Own” roundup has a lot to offer! Many of the US entries are about using up foods harvested the previous Summer, but some entries celebrate foods available right now in Winter, such as carrots, kale, or even foraged truffles.
You’ll notice a lot of lemon and tomato entries – two crops people grow a lot of at home. There are also entries featuring some unusual crops, such as hops and kefir. So without further ado, here are this month’s GYO entries, listed by ingredient.
Bananas and Papayas

My heartfelt thanks to all those who participated in this month's GYO. It’s so inspiring to see all the different dishes you make with homegrown or foraged food.
Stay tuned for the announcement of next month’s roundup!
