Spring Planted and/or late summer in areas with mild winters.  15-16% Protein Level (that is higher than corn)

Oats grow quick in cool, moist conditions.  Used for hay or the oats themselves.  Hulless oats are perfect because no expensive de-hulling machine is needed to remove the hull. 

A must for any homesteader because it has so many uses.  Perfect for breakfast, in muffins or bread.  Feed the entire stalks to horses, goats or sheep for a high protein meal.

An 18-month study conducted in 1998 by the AAFC Research Centre in Lennoxville, QC concluded that hulless oats could replace both corn and the protein supplement in dairy rations with no impact on milk yield or components.

Thresh and feed the seed to the chickens.  There is no better way to fatten up broilers or pigs for that matter. 

Use the hay for the compost pile or as animal feed to ruminants. 

Sprout them for salads or use them as fresh sprouted greens for poultry.  Oats have so many uses!

Field notes:  Very impressed with Streaker oats.  Normally has 0% lodging.  Produces a great stand on land that had min. inputs.  Nice VERY large seeds compared to other hulless types. Well filled out plants and heads.  The only thing you could ask for is a bit more oil content on the seeds themselves.  Older var. have a higher oil content and richer flavor, but that also effects the storability.  By far one of our favorite hulless types for grain production and animal straw.

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
