Organic Gardening Update



Gem corn is not a GMO, Franken-Food developed in a lab to make purple corn. It is one of the oldest varieties of corn and was used by Native Americans well before any Europeans arrived.

Gem corn is beautifully colored flint corn, and I grew it for the sheer gorgeousness of it. 

One major pollination lesson learned - don't plant late when the heat is too great. I'm really looking forward to planting it again in the spring!
