Some of our harvest of Glass Gem corn. This is our first year growing it so most of it will be saved as seed for next year.
This spectacular flint corn was developed by Carl Barnes who was half Cherokee and half Scotch/Irish. He passed away in April.
My roots in the heart of Mother Earth.
My crown in the clouds of Father Sky.
The Four Winds encircle me in spirals of Love.
One going up, then down,
One going down, then up.
They meet in the Center of Complete Perfection–
The Human Stalk of Corn.”
