    If your into growing open polinated heritage seeds http://www.sandhillpreservation.com/ has the largest selection I've ever saw and I probably get a dozen seed catalogs every yr. They must have thirty varieties of corn. Varieties I've never heard of. I've never heard of SandHill either, ordered chicks, now I'm thinking of ordering Glory of Enkhutzen cabbage and Yukon Supreme sweet corn  53 days.
    Most their seeds are organic. You have to request a free catalog to order, no ordering online but you can see what varities they have available online.

    Make that over a 150 varieties of corn if you count sweet, dent, flint, and popcorn. They have one flour type corn they say grows such tight husks pests leave them alone eliminating the need for pesticides.

    It's not as sweet as the commercial bars, like say Mars bar, etc. but I buy a lot of Swiss and German chocolate, its like those, really good... I only ate three last night :D
    Makes me want to send you some of the BC chocolate I can get, it's all organic and really rich in cocoa content... Denman island chocolates... Good stuff.
