Alfred Reed Bishop and Doris William Butler

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.

World Wide Garden Seeds.....American Gardener from The Homegrown Goodness Message Board is onto something big!

One last post for the day can never hurt anything.

Perhaps you have been following the posts by American Gardener over at The Homegrown Goodness Messageboard detailing the start up of his future business and his current seed trade list. What can one say other than that Dave is a pretty amazing guy and has an excellent collection of seeds that he loves to share with the world, the next best thing that could happen to a great guy like Dave........Have him run a seed company for gardeners and by gardeners.

Recently Dave started a blog about this project at World Wide Garden Seeds where he details what he is working towards as well as how he plans to accomplish his goals, he asks for critique from other bloggers and commenters out there and I'm sure he would love to hear from you. I plan to get more involved in his project shortly myself and wanted to help to spread the word to others out there regarding what my buddy is up to.

Be sure and check it out!
