In honor of Gene Frey’s retirement from Fedco, we printed his “dino-melon” design on these shirts. For 40 years, Gene led our Seeds warehouse operations with virtuosic flexibility, unflappable patience, and a daunting depth of knowledge. We miss him! He created the dino-melon in October of 2004. When the Red Sox were making a record-setting comeback in the AL Championship Series, Gene kept hearing Yankees fans chanting “Who’s your daddy?” at Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez. “It got me thinking about the parentage of our seeds, especially GMOs,” he says, and he created a series of weird hybrid graphics along this theme for that year’s Seeds catalog. “They wouldn’t let me print it with the ‘Who’s Your Daddy?’ caption, though.”
Standard crewneck t-shirt in cream-colored organic cotton, with the design printed in an earthy brown. Versatile, like Gene: casual enough for the country, but presentable for an excursion to town.
