Latest Project: Seasonal Foods Calendar

5.5 x 8.5 Planner

I’m pretty terrible at remembering what fruits and vegetables are in season, and I have looked time and again for some sort of visual guide without finding anything I really liked. So, a few weeks ago I started researching and putting together a wall calendar on my own that lists what’s in peak season each month.

I was pretty happy with the results, until I went to the farmer’s market and realized how handy it would be to have a smaller version in my bag! So, I now have an 11×17 calendar as well as a bound 5.5×8.5 planner. I listed the days from Monday to Sunday, because I never agreed with the traditional week starting on Sunday. And I like to plan my weekend as a block, don’t you? I also left out numbering so that they can be used for the rest of this year as well as next year- because things that do double duty rock.

A limited run just went up for sale on Etsy too, since they seem to be useful enough to share with others. They’re really high quality, full color print on thick ivory cardstock:

    terrific idea—I want 3 calenders and one planner. Do you think seasonal flowers could be added in the future—a big help (economical too) when planning seasonal events.
