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.

Filed corn growouts/trials part 1.
University of Kentucky Tuxpeno, sent to me a few years back from a good friend by the name of Jim Culpepper. Silking and Tassling same day is an excellent indicator of drought tollerance and this corn never fails to impress or produce. It's also increadibly "fixed" in type, sometimes resembling a hybrid in it's growth habbit.
A field of Astronomy Domine (still young) surrounded by a mass cross of Cheese Pumpkins of my own stock as well as from Long Island Seed Project
