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.

Composting, Starting Seeds, and Preparing for spring!
I know that I haven't been on much in the past couple of days, but the temperatures here have been outstanding! In the 60's! I can't be attached to the computer when the sun is shining in such a beautiful way! Too much to enjoy outside! We have been composting on a huge scale over the past couple of days, 600 loaves of bred, probably close to a hundred lbs of coffee grounds, lots of cow manure and some other materials! Sifting through worm compost as well as thermophilic compost and making soil blocks while cleaning up and sanatizing the greenhouses has taken up much of my time! Pictures to come soon and many more updates my friends!
