With locavore rhetoric leading the international conversation on the future of farming, food and sustainability, one must ask the simple, almost embarrassingly simple question without fear of mockery: What’s in season? A seemingly simple query, but one that has many a conscience eater scratching skull. Since the Internet is the unofficial “School of Today”, we turn to it in hopes of a clear answer. This solution we came across comes in the form of visual stimuli fit for a design nerd worthy of his weight in Kale . . . or Spinach . . . depending where you reside, of course. Tyler Mintz, creator of Foodstalk, a “creative local foods campaign” has devised an excellent and attractive chart of vegetables, color-coded for the different seasons. Other apps have been developed to keep track of such matters of the soil, but rarely are they as good looking as this.

No word yet on weather or not Tyler plans to create more charts for different regions of the world, but we’re sure a little nudging wouldn’t hurt in the least.
