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.

New World Crops!

Looks like tomato/potato breeder extrodinaire Tom Wagner and his/my friend Rob Wagner (Atash for those of you from Homegrown Goodness) have started a new seed related venture. New World Crops is a brand new seed company based on the work of Tom Wagner as well as the survivalism based research of Rob Wagner. I give the guys major props on getting the venture up and running in a time when it is needed most!

Rob also did an excellent introduction video over at their website extolling the virtures and the reasons now is the time to grow you own food.

Be sure to check it out!
