I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

Bath Cos Lettuce
Bath Cos (61 days)
Approximately 200-250 seeds per pkg.
Originating before 1885, a deliciously meaty, crunchy Cos lettuce. Grows huge, 12" in diameter heads in the summer and can be tied-up to blanch the inner leaves and improve their flavor.Large dark green leaves have a rust tinge and slightly savoyed texture, wide crunchy leaves form open heads.
A contributor to The Gardener in 1867 praised it as follows: "This sort ought to be in every garden. No other variety can surpass it or approach it for general use. The leaves are large, broad, and scooped, and reflexed round the margins. The exposed parts are shaded a rust purple color and the whole plant is scattered over with blisters. To blanch properly, it requires tying together, but when thoroughly blanched and cut into strips for the table, nothing can surpass it for appearance. Thrown into a heap on the snowy linen, it looks a rich crystalline, frothy pile and cannot fail to be a tempting and refreshing bite for the hungry sportsman after a hard day's labor."
Mentioned by Vilmorin-Andrieux in 1885, English heirloom. From the Heritage Seed Library, UK.
