May 14, 2012 - Glass Gem Corn

Here is the prettiest corn I ever did see:







Quote:
(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!

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?

All the big corporations depreciate their possessions, and you can, too, provided you use them for business purposes. For example, if you subscribe to the Wall Street Journal, a business-related newspaper, you can deduct the cost of your house, because, in the words of U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger in a landmark 1979 tax decision: "Where else are you going to read the paper? Outside? What if it rains?"
