Grow Your Own is an event that celebrates the foods we grow or raise ourselves and the dishes we make using our homegrown products. Each month for the past year, it has been hosted by the talented Andrea @ Andrea’s Recipes.
This event has grown in popularity and henceforth will be held fortnightly, with different hosts. We are privileged to host Grow Your Own this fortnight. Thank you, dear Andrea, for the opportunity.
~ Make a dish that uses at least one item from your very own garden or farm and post about it. Your garden doesn’t have to be big. Indoor, outdoor and container gardens are welcome! If you hunted or foraged, those items are also eligible. You can also use something that was given to you, but the giver must have personally grown or raised the item. If you paid for it, then it doesn’t count.
Highlight the edibles you have raised, grown, or found and cooked with. Anything edible qualifies, including fruits, vegetables, herbs, sprouts, edible flowers, nuts, grains, legumes, dairy products, eggs, livestock …
Different regions will have different things available, so feel free to feature things unique to your area. (Rambutan trees, anyone?) We are all about celebrating variety!
~ Please make sure your dish is posted during the month of the event because we like to celebrate seasonal items.
~ Please send in your entry with a picture (300 pixels wide, height does not matter) using the ENTRY FORM below.
~ DEADLINE: the 30th of July, midnight, Eastern Standard Time.
~ One post per blog, please.
