Fruits, Vegetables & Seeds

Samples from my collection of fruits, vegetables and seed clip art below.
        The following clip art collection may be used for personal crafting/journaling about your cooking and gardening. Include my clip art on recipe pages or recipe cards, however you like to compile notes and lists about food in your own kitchen.

Journaling About Cooking:

During the Industrial Revolution Era,
 Sears, Roebuck and Co. sold seed through
their mail-order company. Read more
 about Sears during the Victorian Era.
Many ordinary folks in America still
order their seed for their kitchen
gardens from Burpee and Gurneys.
       Most seed companies or resellers that sell retail, produce a catalog – generally published during early winter for seed to be sown the following spring. These catalogs are eagerly awaited by the amateur gardener, as during winter months there is little that can be done in the garden, so this time can be spent planning the following year’s gardening. The largest collection of nursery and seed trade catalogs in the U.S. is held at the National Agricultural Library. The earliest catalogs there date from the late 18th century, with most published from the 1890s to the present. Shakers were among the earliest commercial producers of garden seeds; the first seeds sold in paper packets were produced by the Watervliet Shakers.
