Growing and Harvesting Grains
In Your Backyard

"Fruits, herbs, and vegetables get all the attention among gardeners."

"Backyard poultry and goats provide eggs and dairy (and perhaps meat) for some, but what about the staple foods? Wheat, oats, millet, and other grains are actually much easier to grow than most fruits and vegetables, yet we tend to leave those foods to large farms and buy our flour and cornmeal at the grocery store. There is a bit of specialized knowledge needed to grow grains, but there are a couple myths that have turned people off from the idea." 

Learn the in's and out's of growing grains in your backyard! 

It is definitely possible to do this with a little know-how and will power!

Dublin Farmers' Market: September 9th

"Never be a food snob. Learn from everyone you meet - the fish guy at your market, the lady at the local diner, farmers, cheese makers. Ask questions, try everything and eat up!"

Rachael Ray


Reasons to Shop at Your Local Farmers Market


There is more to shopping at your local farmers markets than buying local. Although this is an excellent attribute to supporting your local farmers markets, a study conducted by the University of Iowa indicates that when we hand over the cash for our coveted and local Cherokee Purples (a fabulous tomato), we are engaged in a lot more than shopping for food.

“The surprise is that there really are a variety of reasons why people go to the farmers market,” said study coauthor Ion Vasi (University of Iowa). Those reasons go beyond the improved freshness and taste of a higher-quality product. In jargon-heavy academia, farmers markets fit into what theorists call “moralized markets.” In common parlance, we might say we’re shopping our values, or, put more politically, voting with our dollar. - The Reasons Why We Shop at Farmers Markets Are Bigger Than Local Food, By: Sarah McColl, for TakePart

Dublin Farmers' Market: September 2nd

“Food, a French man told me once, is the first wealth. Grow it right, and you feel insanely rich, no matter what you own.”
- Kristin Kimball


Give Back to Your Soil: Planting a Fall Cover Crop

Photo Credit: Modern Farmer

"With every garden harvest, the soil nutrients that produced the crop are removed and end up nourishing our bodies, rather than next year's crop. For this reason, farmers and gardeners have to replenish the soil every year. Adding fertilizers and compost is one way to accomplish the task, but nutrients can also be returned with a cover crop—plants that give back to the soil what others have removed." - Brian Barth, Modern Farmer

Learn more about planting cover crops this fall from Brian Barth's article found on the Modern Farmer website.

While reading this article learn more about:
  • General cover crop facts
  • Which cover crops to plant
  • When to plant your cover crops
  • And, how to sow your cover crop seeds
