Fruit & Vegetable Calendar 2021
This exciting project has been a collaboration between Artist printmaker & Textile designer – Isla Middleton and Bryony Middleton, Head Gardener at Sharpham Trust in Devon.
This calendar is a celebration of seasonal fruit and vegetables, beautifully illustrated with full page original hand carved linocut prints.
The concept is to inspire, encourage and teach people to sow, grow and harvest fresh produce straight from the garden. It also promotes the importance of seasonal, and locally grown organic food and the positive benefits of connecting with nature. Each month will offer advice and practical growing tips to help you plan the year from seed to harvest.
Mooli or Daikon radish is a root vegetable similar in shape to a carrot with a flavour that's similar to a mild radish. This white, crunchy root vegetable can brighton up meals, adding texture and sweet flavour to dishes and condiments. Cubed, grated or sliced, it adds bite and character. Common in traditional Japanese food and other Asian cuisines.
The leaves can be used in salads or soups too.
