How to Wash Your Veggies

6 May


Spring has quickly come and almost gone. With the summer months approaching I know that my produce purchasing will significantly increase. As a young adult on my own I’ve realized things that should be really common sense doesn’t always click with me. Maybe it’s so common sense no one thought to share it with me, but washing your veggies is an important thing to do. So what do you do when you don’t know how to do something? Google it. I came across this post here that breaks down the best way to handle cleaning different types of produce. It also gives a list of the dirty dozen and clean fifteen. Needless to say, I bought a gallon size thing of vinegar last night.

The Eat Seasonally print above is available in my shop here. It’s a fun little reminder of when your favorite produce is most available in their finest. I’m looking forward to our on campus Farmer’s Market opening this Thursday. I’ve been patiently waiting.

New Print: Eat Seasonally Poster

4 Jun

I tell you I’ve been excited to feature this new print! After weeks of nights dedicated to painting little fruits and veggies, I couldn’t be more pleased with how this print turned out. In fact it’s framed and ready to go hang in my kitchen once I break out the tools.

The poster features 27 hand painted fruit and veggie illustrations that I made using gouache. They are then separated into four seasons. This poster is very bright and colorful and has such pretty fonts. The colors were inspired by Anthropologie. Printed on card stock, the size measures 10.125 x 15.5 and will come shipped in a mailing tube.

You can purchase your copy here

Side Note: I had three posters print with some stray marks around the garlic. There is also a discounted listing for those. The marks aren’t very evident. In fact I framed one of these for my own.
