Mother Nature's Jewels
You would be forgiven for thinking this image was a close up of an intricate gem stone necklace, but it's not. It's actually something you can eat. I know extraordinary isn't it?
It's glass gem corn an amazing cross breed corn that is nearly translucent. It's not a sweet corn so you can't munch it as is. But it can be popped and ground for polenta and cornbread. I think it's quite dazzling. The seed is sold through a non-profit seed conservation organisation called Native Seeds/SEARCH.
Isn't Mother Nature wonderful? And look she can write too.
If you would like her to write to you pop over to this site and find out how to get in touch.
