Gone to Seed

Just look at that corn! Doesn't it look absolutely mouth-watering? Wouldn't you love to cook it up, slather it in butter and savor every last bite of this delicious, golden cob of sweet corn?

That's the idea behind the Burpee seed catalog...to entice you into growing your own produce, and it always tastes better when you've grown it yourself!

The Burpee seed company was founded way back in 1878 by Washington Atlee Burpee. It's catalogs featured beautiful illustrations of all types of flowers and produce.

Though the modern catalogs rely primarily on photographs for the covers, the early ones were true works of art!
