The picture above is the very tap root of Bishop's Homegrown/Face Of The Earth Seed. My grandparents shortly after moving to Pekin Indiana from Greensburg KY in 1947 where they purchased the farm that is now Bishop's Homegrown. This picture was taken in Pekin in front of the old co-op next to the old railroad depot, neither of which exist today.

Fall/Winter 2009 Tomato Crop Greenhouse Number 1.
Last night I finished picking all the tomatoes from Greenhouse number one (the larger of the two) including the green ones because they were at breaker stage and we were having some issues with our heating equipment. The wheelbarrow here was heaped up as of this morning but we sold close to 25 lbs today and I sent Kim's family quite a few for an early Christmas present. The other greenhouse should be finished out by the end of this week, our yield this year was astounding and I am very proud.
