It’s time for the Grow Your Own third anniversary roundup. I was very excited as I received the information on each post and I want to extend a special thanks to all who participated. We had friends from Canada, Australia, Malaysia, and the United States all sharing what they are making with the food they grew, foraged, hunted, or raised.
If you’d like to join us, our host for September is Heather of of Girlichef and she has posted an announcement with all the details. Deadline for posts is September 30, so make sure you send your information to Heather and she will post a round-up a few days later.
And now for the round-up! Click the images to visit the posts. (Presented in the order received.)
