For this we must again thank my Uncle Rodney Plyles, now a delegate to the House of Delegates in West Virginia, who led us to the Ohio's Gardens of Zoar. 

He noted the sycamore named in the Gospel reading from Luke and asked if it was the tree he knew.

Hello William,

These photos are from trial plots of grains I am conducting on our little farm here in Northern Indiana. My goal is to find a number of staple crops (grains and dry beans) that will grow successfully in our region. Once finding suitable crops, we save the seed and grow out larger plots the next season with the intent to offer the seed for sale to gardeners and homesteaders here in our local community. I raise only open-pollinated seed, most of which is heirloom/ancient varietals. While my focus is not specifically on Biblical crops, I do know that many of them are from that part of the world. The Sin El Pheel wheat is from Iraq.
