HOME Cooked Spring Recipes: 5 Ingredients, 5-ish Minutes

"Happy to spread the safe enjoyment of fiddleheads, Jennifer! This looks delicious and I look forward to trying it soon before fiddleheads disappear all-too-quickly. This warm fiddlehead salad is my favorite go-to for these tasty critters."

Farm Aid Music Monday & Chipotle's BOORITO

Over on Farm Aid's blog (I'm the "web guy" there), it's Music Monday. We're taking a break from Farm Aid 2011 videos and going back in time to 2001. Why? Because today is BOORITO day at Chipotle Mexican Grill! You can get a $2 burrito when you wear a family farm-inspired costume from 6pm to closing. Half of that money goes to Farm Aid and the other half goes to Chipotle's…See More

"As a follow-up, these plants are still alive and thriving! The lower leaves with these brown spots are still there (as are the brown spots, although they've faded a little), but new leaves are growing in normally. Basil pesto is in my future!"

"I'm trying to grow some patty pan squash this summer. I hope they grow, so I can try out this recipe!"

"Cool idea, I haven't tried homemade liquid soap yet, but I've been using a recipe for a powdered version that works well and is easy. I, too, go the food processor route. Obviously, the best part is blowing up a soap bar in the microwave!"

Heather Skerl Spegal replied to matt's discussion 'Identify that spot!' in the group Herb Lovers!
"If you havent seen bugs, its probably as Torry said. To much water. Best of luck! they look wonderful even with the little blemishes. If you do see bugs later, I had flea beetles that neem seem to take care of on my tomatoes. "

Share your Farm Fresh Pics!

One of my favorite things to do here on HOMEGROWN.ORG is look at all the photos so many people upload (there are over 1,500 of them as of right now!). Some of these photos are really lovely and I would encourage people to upload them to Farm Aid's new site called Farm Fresh Pics. The idea is that we want to put together a site full of the beauty of family farms and… Continue

A busy week at Farm Aid comes to a close

When I tell people that I work at Farm Aid, I never know quite how people will react. Will they say, "Oh you guys are still around? Remember Live Aid?!" or, "Nice! Can you get me on the bus with Willie, I got some killer homegrown stuff to share with him!" Or will they say, "That's awesome - here, come see my compost bin!" (OK, it's not often I'm shown something so personal as someone's compost bin when they first meet me, but you get the idea.) What I'm trying to say is, some people think of… Continue

Photos from the Dairy Rally & My HOMEGROWN Wannabe Dreams

This week at Farm Aid, we welcomed Joel back to the office after his trip to Iowa last weekend where he attended the Dairy Rally for Fair Prices. Thankfully, weather cooperated and turnout was good - farmers and participants from eight states showed up and spoke about solutions to the ongoing dairy crisis (the short version of which is, dairy farmers are being paid less for their milk than it takes to produce… Continue

Howdy from the Land of Farm Aid & Important News About a Dairy Rally

Hi there, I'm Matt.



I've been a member here on HOMEGROWN since it debuted as a social network and have enjoyed following the conversations and getting inspiration from all of the things people are working on, but I haven't written any blog posts here - until now. Exciting to be witnessing history, isn't it?



I've been the "Web Guy" at Farm Aid for a little over a year now and would like to update you on just what it is we're working on from time to… Continue
