Oderbrucker Barley
(Was also called Wisconsin No. 55)

Considered the standard in Malting Barley for MANY years. 

1920 Berry's Seed Company says about Oderbrucker Barley...
"...considered to be the best variety of barley sent out by the Wisconsin Station. Professor Moore declares it to be superior to the Manshury, yielding 5 to 10 bushels more per acre.  The original stock of this barley was obtained in Germany by the Ontario Agricultural College.   ...a stiff strawed, heavy yielding, six rowed bearded barley.   It has a protein content of 15 per cent, or nearly double the amount of protein found in many other barley varieties.  ...one of the best for malting barley." 

1930 Dreers Seed Catalogs says about Oderbrucker Barley...
"A productive and reliable six rowed bearded variety and an improvement over the old Manshurey."

Quinoa Growing Instructions

With it's origins in the high Andean plateau, quinoa is best adapted to cooler climates, but will grow in almost any moderate climate.  Keep in mind that those with hot summers may have reduced yields.  Quinoa doesn't like it's roots wet so make sure the soil doesn't stay inundated with water.  Plant 1/2 to 1" deep (depending on soil moisture) into a well prepared seed bed in late spring.  Space plants 3-4" apart on 24" rows for a single-headed crop.  For maximum yield, space plants 12" apart on 24" rows for multi branched plants.  Keep the soil moist while germinating.  
Quinoa spends it's first few weeks developing roots, so be vigilant to keep the soil weeded, or weeds can quickly take over a plot. Once the plants start to mature, the seeds will mature from the top of the plant down, allowing for an extended harvest.  If you wait until the whole plant is mature, the top seeds can shatter and be lost, so it's best to harvest the seed heads as they mature from the top down.  
Thresh into a clean bucket or garbage can by hitting the seed head against the side, or rubbing the seed head between gloved hands.  Quinoa contains a saponin coating that will need to be rinsed off before eating.  Before eating, soak the seeds for a few minutes, and then place the seeds into a colander under running water until no more foam forms.  
Quinoa seeding rate is about 10/lb per acre with yields normally between 1,000-3,000 lb per acre
