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.

Blue Ribbon Bush Bean Seeds
Blue Ribbon Bush (55 days)
Blue Ribbon would surely take first prize at the county fair. A great green snap bean. It is a heavy producer of uniform, meaty, 6" green pods. Blue ribbon's pods have stylish purplish streaks that make this popular with the kids. This is an excellent flat podded Romano type bush bean. Blue ribbon also makes an excellent dry bean. Very hard to find these days.
*Extremely short supply. Might be able to get more, but I wouldn't take the chance if you want this one.
