Printing from the Garden

marigolds_wbThis has been a bumper year in the Bow Street Community Garden for pot marigolds, or calendula officinalis to give them their proper name. The bees have been hard at work, so lots of flowers has meant lots of seeds, and we have been harvesting since July, mixing seeds from the orange and the yellow flowers.

Now, as summer draws to a close and the nights draw in, we have turned to an indoor job–printing seed packets ready for sale from our table at the 2013 Oxford Fine Press Book Fair at Oxford Brookes University on 2-3 November.  There you will also find our wood-type postcards–if you look closely, one is displayed in the photo–and a fresh harvest of new books, too!
