Hi Folks,

Wondering if anyone knows of a seed source for the Siberian Corn mentioned in "Rebel Farmer".

That said, if anyone knows of any links to general information about this plant, also much appreciated.

This year i finally managed to find ONE source of the Eincorn that Sepp mentions in his book.
here is the link for - Bountiful Gardens - site

http://www.bountifulgardens.org/prodinfo.asp?number=GWH%2D7530

If they still have some available you will get  12 seeds , i planted half of them in a deep container to make more seeds ,and they all germinated and are growing ,but now it might be to late to plant. its almost may.
