I'll admit to being confused. What exactly are you posting?
I'm as big a fan of heirloom corn and saving the seed thereof, but I'm not sure what your post is about/for?
Are you trying to ask a question?
Just sharing a little seed corn family photos?

I look forward to figuring out what you  intend here.
Best thoughts!

The post from that crazy link:

Brian Laufer Wrote: Hello world. I recently inherited a huge collection of rare ancient peruvian and other hierloom corns. Everything from popcorns, sweet corns, and flour corns. The largest kerneled type flour corns require the longest growing season that only southern california may be able to supply. The rest should have a good chance at ripening in most of the US.
I NEED YOUR HELP growing these out in your gardens and farms. I can not do it all my self because i want to keep varieties pure. So they must be grown on separate locations. If you feel inspired to grow any of these corns pictured reach out asap. I will send you the seeds no cost and expect 1/3 of the first harvest returned to me. If you can agree to that i can send. This is a very rare opportunity to grow these endangered varieties. Please reach out if interested
