Bloody Butcher

We are big fans of heirloom seeds. It's so fun to read the descriptions of the seeds to see how old they are and really learn their story. One of our local farmer friends grows bloody butcher corn and sells it as corn meal at the farmers market. We love it!

We decided to grow our own this year. It's really quite pretty and I can see where it can be used as a decoration in the fall. It has been around in the US since 1845! No GMO corn here! The variations in color are really quite pretty.

Now we just need to find a small mill for our home to grind it up! I'd love to find something so I could grind fresh wheat as well to make bread. And yes, growing wheat is on the agenda for the future!
