The From Seed to Spoon mobile app guides you through planting, growing, harvesting, and preparing 60+ vegetables with information specific to where you live. We'll guide you through all aspects of growing and we'll help you plan out your garden by providing information about which companion plants grow best next to each plant, as well as which plant combinations to avoid! You can also view which pests attack that plant and read about how to deal with them organically as well as learn about how to encourage the good bugs as well!

The "How to Start" tab walks you through getting started with growing food. We had no idea where to begin when we started growing food for our family of 6. We've tried pretty much every gardening method and tip we could find in books, videos, and online over the past 3 years. Some of them have worked great, and some of them...not so much. We've taken all that we've learned and built a list of steps for anyone that wants to start growing food.

This is just the beginning for us. We have a lot of great ideas about how we can help make the food growing process easier for everyone. We'd love to hear your feedback or ideas about how we can improve the app. There's a "submit feedback" button on the About tab in the app that will send your feedback directly to us!

About Us

Hi, we’re Dale and Carrie Spoonemore, the creators of “From Seed to Spoon.” After two years of research and trial and error, we have learned quite a bit about growing a sustainable food garden in our urban Oklahoman backyard. Now we’re here to help you along your own gardening journey by showing you what we learned!

We decided in spring of 2015 that we wanted to try growing most of the vegetables our family of six would eat. Neither of us had much previous experience growing food, and needless to say, we had a lot to learn.

We started with a typical Oklahoma Bermuda grass lawn, and over the course of two years, we converted it into an urban backyard food farm. I spent nearly all of my free time over the course of those two years reading books, attending classes, and watching YouTube videos to learn all I could about gardening and growing food.

We remember how lost and overwhelmed we felt when we first started, and now we want to share what we’ve learned in hopes of helping others grow food for themselves as well! Growing your own food doesn't have to be difficult and we're here to help you grow food efficiently, economically, and sustainably!

Great updates


I really like the new updates! The filters have made finding cool season plants so easy! the added information regarding generally safe planting dates and average last frost date for my area is helpful and easy to find. Great information and so user friendly, thank you for making the transition from Colorado planting dates to Oklahoma planting dates easy for us to adjust to!

Easiest garden app to navigate and full of useful info


Gardening app or app in general this app is very smooth and easy to navigate. The info is great for a beginner or even avid gardener with up to date and area specific data and info. Also a very great app to involve your kids! Great link placement and availability! For sure 5 star and can't wait to keep tuned in for updates and help starting our garden!!

New Gardner's best friend


I've only spent 3 minutes in this app and am already in love with it! Takes so much guess work out of starting seeds and planting times for a new gardener like myself. Can't wait to dig in to this app some more.
