July – Demeter.

In ancient Greek mythology, Demeter is the goddess of the harvest and agriculture, who presided over grains and the fertility of the earth. Though Demeter is often described simply as the goddess of the harvest, she presided also over the sacred law, and the cycle of life and death

Finished my main summer project, a seasonal planting calendar. This is meant to serve as a visual reminder of when you should be planning to plant your produce (based on the planting seasons of the Eastern U.S., NY specifically). 

Just a note, each plant has different needs, and some require starting seeds indoors while others can be planted directly outdoors (and some you can likely find already growing around you). Some have longer growing seasons than what is shown. Lots of info can be found online, have fun researching!

Prints & more found here. Happy planting!

October – Velnias

In the Baltic mythology he’s the god of the underworld and afterlife, the patron of beasts. After Christianization, his appearance was demonized and merged with the devil. Sacrifices were offered to him so that he could “graze” the souls of the dead. Vels was dedicated to the days of the dead and the month of October.
