Many of you know I have been involved in all areas of period (heirloom) edibles - foraged and cultivated. Have written a few articles on the subject, did more research than anyone with common sense would have done. Must have been the old hippy knowledge coming out or Mother Earth News articles or having been born on the edge of Valley Forge Park in PA? I have worked with several growers of these seeds (trying to match what our forefathers used - Jefferson & his friends). GURNEY’S of all the big growers were by far the easiest to work with and provided much of the items of interest that could be crossed referenced.

Here's a link built for the more common edibles cultivated in Jefferson's Garden Book along with Payne and Franklin's garden notes. Can't get much further back than these guys, many were items traded when visiting their European counterparts.

Other than "cookin' some rebels asses", remember that part in your history classes.  Now that's a real eye opener "potlicker.   What a Face    cyclops 

Just kidding don't get your tail feathers up - some southern brother may take a shot   lol!

Connor, you are doing good work.  

Growing up in WV we had numerous heirloom varieties of fruit and veggies.   The original beef steak tomatoes stand out.   Farmers orchards often had heirloom apples like Rambo, Pumpkin Sweet and Spies (the locals called it Northern Spy.)   Mom made jelly from Siberian crab apples.   

Allowing all those heirloom varieties to go away was a mistake.   Example:  Today just a few types of wheat are being grown and that's an invitation to disaster.
