May 14, 2012 - Glass Gem Corn

Here is the prettiest corn I ever did see:

(Seed Trust) The story of glass gem corn. Seedsman Greg Schoen got the seed from Carl Barnes, a part-Cherokee man, now in his 80's, in Oklahoma.

He was Greg's "corn-teacher". Greg was in the process of moving last year and wanted someone else to store and protect some of his seeds.

He left samples of several corn varieties, including glass gem. I grew out a small handful this past summer just to see.

The rest, as they say is history. I got so excited, I posted a picture on Facebook. We have never seen anythin
g like this. Unfortunately, we did not grow out enough to sell. Look for a small amount for sale starting in August 2011. Thanks, bill

Thanks to wolf for the find!

the first picture looks really cool.... the other two just look like Indian Corn to me. Nothing new around here.

All hail Demeter!!!!!
In Barrie's play and novel, the roles of fairies are brief: they are allies to the Lost Boys, the source of fairy dust and ...They are portrayed as dangerous, whimsical and extremely clever but quite hedonistic.

"Shall I give you a kiss?" Peter asked and, jerking an acorn button off his coat, solemnly presented it to her.

Hail! Hail!

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. -- Marcus Aurelius, philosopher and writer (121-180)

But do they taste like sweet corn? Or is this the sort that you have to dry and grind and make taco thingies out of?
