Glass Gem Corn Is Cray-Cray

Glass Gem Corn Is Cray-Cray

This is a photo of Glass Gem Corn. It’s not a regular ear of corn that someone put a Sharpie to, it’s not Photoshopped, and it’s not a figment of your drug addled imagination. Glass Gem Corn is a natural, but extremely rare variety that’s been made popular recently by Seeds Trust. The family business acquired the seeds from a seedsman who wanted to put them in safe keeping. Which totally makes sense because who better to trust your super rare seeds than with a business called Seeds Trust? Just sayin’. I think the real issue here is Mother Nature is obviously trying to keep us on our toes. Orrrr f*** with us, because she knows the end is nigh and wants to get her kicks while she still can.
