the Vegetannual

I just came across this poster while perusing Barbara Kingsolver's site.  It's by artist Richard A. Houser and it depicts the vegetannual described in Kingsolver's "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle."  The bottom of the poster (not shown in this image) displays the quote from the book: 

"Picture a single imaginary plant, bearing throughout the seasons all the different vegetables we harvest...we'll call it a Vegetannual."

The poster also shows which month most of these vegetables are harvested and would be available from a local farmer.  This poster serves as a great reminder of what we should be growing or buying, and when. 

It's available here.
