More insider information from a Farmer.

I bought some quinces this week because they’re now in season. My grandfather also grows the fruit in Bulgaria – but his are way more delicious and juicy than the ones I found in the UK supermarkets. Discussing the topic with him today, here are some interesting facts about growing quinces:

  • You plant the seed and the tree begins producing fruit after two years.
  • The plant very much looks like an apple tree.
  • The fruit starts to bud in May and they’re ready for picking  in October (through to November).
  • They can be stored in cool environments and thus, can last through the winter as a supply of fresh produce.

Also – I did not know that Black Radishes exist! My grandfather casually mentioned that he picked some up from his fields… and so I discovered a new variant of a well-known vegetable!

I love learning about the seasonality / production of fruits and vegetables because living in a big city can disconnect you from understanding where your food is coming from… and agriculture still is a basic building block for life.

Poster

I made a new short animated film about my sketchbook (and voila a quick poster design!). Watch the video on Youtube: HERE. 

I would like to formally apologise if the video does not work in your region. I’m having issues with the third party content of the song. Therefore, I’m trying to get an original cover of the song to re-upload it with original music (to avoid copyright infringements on Youtube). 

But please let me know what you think! I would love to hear your comments, concerns, opinions, etc.
