Culture and Food

Many of us across the world are mourning the loss of Anthony Bourdain.  In honor of him and to continue his legacy of bringing people together through food, we thought we'd share a little about why we grow heirloom vegetables. You may have seen an episode or two of his television show and watched him eat food with new friends in all corners of the world.  For us, this is the reason to grow and eat heirloom vegetables.  Second best to traveling and sharing food with people from a region or country where the seed originated, is growing it and sharing it with friends and family near you.  We are really looking forward to our Monomakh's Hat, a tomato from Novosibirsk, Siberia, a Syrian stuffing eggplant variety saved by a man named Ragad Khorani, a cucumber from Aonaga Jibai, Japan from an family in Bepou City in Kyushu Island, and a melon from right here in Kansas.  R.I.P. Anthony Bourdain
