I know with all the weather systems and such that it might be a far thought from some minds about planting a garden and the like.

Do you plan on planting a garden this year or making other changes to be more self sufficient?

Yup, it's edible. It's a flint type, used for corn meal, rather than sweet corn. But it's so pretty, I think a lot of people would use it decoratively. I think I'm going to save all of the first crop (or sell at the farmers' market), and maybe try out the taste in year two? We'll see how productive it is this year. :)

Quoting NWP:

Wow...That is some beautiful stuff! Is it decorative or edible? Please keep us informed as to your progress with this variety as the summer progresses...I can't wait to hear about it?

I bet you a buck you won't be able to stop yourself from nibbling on at least one little ear during the first year.

LOL

Rarity driven pricing. It seems many things are insane that way.

Sure. It also kind of shows either the lack of foresight or severe impatience of people. I mean, wait one growing season and the amount of seeds increases many-fold. 

Silly :)

I had a great little garden on a postage stamp size plot (8X16x12 foot triangle)that  I dug out in the back yard when I lived in SF. We didn't get alot of sun and the fog, of course, is insane.  The broccoli and carrots did well, but only enough yield for a meal or two. I got a couple of squashes, too, but my front porch though was always kickin' with enough sweet pea pods to add to meals. 

I live on my sailboat now, so no garden.
