Ben was a very religious man and on the seed packs he sent out he wrote sayings from the Bible

The stump part referes to the Root,if you will,of Jesse in the Bible.

I don't understand the connection you made above between ARGG and pirate.

Note the history..

When I was at SSE in IA doing a program, Bill Minkey, a long time friend brought Ruby's niece with him and a copy of my heirloom tomato book. She asked me to autograph that page in the book for her,I did,and she started crying and crying,then both Bill and I did as well.

Hope that helps,

YOU should have had HER give an autograph for YOU!
