Is it a good day for food when pictures of corn go viral? Sure.
Greg Schoen of the Seeds Trust put up photos of the “glass gem” corn on his Facebook page last year, and this week, the beautiful photos received thousands of likes. In fact, Schoen can’t keep up with the corn love and seed requests:
Hello dear seed people! So GLASS GEM corn has gone viral! The update here is that I don’t have enough at this point in time to meet the demand- sorry folks! Those of us who have it will surely be trying to grow more! I’m excited how enthusiastic you all are about it although the website is down due to the enormous show if interest. Please stand by for more info on the corn and the site. Thanks!
So we’re standing by.
