Looking for heirloom carrots, onions, corn and/or peppers

I've really enjoyed growing rare heirloom varieties of vegetables this year. If you have any interesting heirloom seeds to share for carrots, onions, corn and/or cucumbers - I'm interested.

I have 4 unopened non-GMO seed packs of radishes, okra, rutabega and sorrel to exchange in return. (Actually, I have a lot more options than that, so feel free to name your "price" in preferred varietal and I'll see if I have it)

Corn, a basic foodstuff

When the lights go out, if you find yourself unprepared you should at least be able to find corn in this neighborhood.  Eventually you might have to grow your own, but that's doable too.  Corn might be to us like rice is to the Chinese or potatoes were to the Irish.

The first thing you might need is a grain mill.  I've got an old, cheap one from the 1970s, but it grinds corn, wheat and beans just fine.  I am, however, considering a newer model for backup, like the Country Living or Wonder Junior.
