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.

Congratulations Alan - what an exciting project! And, thanks for the link to the article. I have been a VERY big fan of Tim Peters and his work for many years, though I only know him by purchasing and growing out his seeds. That in itself has been an inspiration. I looking forward to hearing about this collaboration!
