Early Corn

Our 24 acre field of corn is standing green and tall at 5 feet. The deer run in and out of their endless salad bar and the rabbits and turkeys inhabit the fringe at the field's edge. These beautiful seed packages are from the Smithsonian digital collection. The images on the packages say so much about the glory and hope that once existed in American farms and gardens, before the corporate industrialization of food.
