Customer Reviews

  • Author: Jennie Lillard
    In my garden wheat trials, I was very pleased by Hill 81. I live 2.5 miles from the coast in Mendocino County, and despite the drought, this little plot of 25 seeds got waterlogged in some of my worst acidic pygmy hardpan. I never weeded that spot or amended the soil and this wheat still performed well enough for me to have seed to sow again this fall. Other wheats were affected by sooty molds from our moist climate, but the Hill 81 plot was unaffected.
