Hudson Valley Seed Library


I'm thrilled to have illustrated this seed packet for the Hudson Valley Seed Library. Blue jade sweet corn originated in Mexico, so I incorporated a map into the drawing as a nod to those historical roots. These corn plants are very short, so you can grow them in a pot. These seeds, along with many other 'custom artist designed' packets are available here.


Unfolded, the seed packet looks like this. (images courtesy of seedlibrary.org)
