Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Oats are grown throughout on both dry and irrigated land. Best yields are obtained in regions with cool temperatures and adequate moisture. Hot, dry weather, when the crop is filling, frequently results in poorly filled kernels and low yield. For good kernel development, oats need more growing season moisture than any other small grain.
Consequently, oats produce best when seeded on the heavier clay-loam soils. Oat yields in excess of 100 bushels per acre frequently occur with timely irrigation and with recommended fertility treatments. Silt and clay-loam soils having good moisture retention ability are best for oat production. Sandy soils, coarse textured soils, or soils with a shallow surface are not desirable for oats.
Oats may be more tolerant of poorer soil conditions, and successful production requires management practices that conserve and store soil moisture. The alluvial river valley soils are well adapted to oats. Oats are not tolerant of salty, saline or alkali conditions and production should not be attempted when such conditions predominate.
