When to plant what: A gardening calendar for SoCal

November 8, 2011 |  3:25 pm

Calendar 2 600

Elinor Nissley owns and operates Krank Press, a letterpress company based out of Silver Lake. Incorporating woodcuts and drawings into her hand-printed works, Nissley's creations include gardening calendars for specific growing regions such as the Bay Area and Southern California.

Each calendar month features a linoleum block print of a seasonal fruit or vegetable and lists planting recommendations in addition to what's in season at the market. Calendars are not year-specific so they are a gift that keeps on giving for green thumbs and garden enthusiasts. The gardening calendars cost $20 and can be purchased on Etsy.
