It's the middle of August and the farmer's markets in the city are in full swing…. over-flowing with bright summery vegetables and juicy fruits.
As I drove upstate yesterday to the "Leatherstocking" region of central New York State to attend the Madison-Bouckville antiques week, I passed farm after gorgeous farm. This is a little off the topic, but while I am upstate, I am staying in a yurt on a beautiful property that was once part of the infamous Loomis Lair.
Anyway…with produce on my mind, I was delighted to discover an adorable antique card game entitled "Know Your Vegetables".
Probably dating back to the 1910s or 20s, check out the whimsical illustrations and poems. This super-charming game is a little gem.
The art is clearly inspired by seed packets and labels of this period. I have hundreds of these in my collection, but only one "Know Your Vegetables" card game.
A few other neat pieces of veggie decor to leave you with. Straying from the Americana, here are a few German vegetable charts- black & white engravings from the 1890s. These would make great kitchen wallpaper.
