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.

Boone County White Corn Seed
Boone County White Corn Seed (110-120 days)
Boone County White was created by Mr. James Riley of Boone County, Indiana back in 1874.
Mr. Riley started with the variety "White Mastodon" and selected on the traits he desired such as ear size and leaf size.
A few years later he released his new corn and named it Boone County White.
Boone County was very popular for good reason.
It is a very heavy producer of huge ears that measure 9-11" in length.
That is almost a foot long!
The uniform ears have 18-22 rows.
Heavily leaved, which is great for shading out understory weeds.
Boone County white is a diverse corn that is used for silage, stock feed and cornmeal.
A great deal of information has been lost about the performance of some of these old varieties. Fortunately, some old historical information exists that really helps us today. The 1936 USDA Yearbook of Agriculture recommended Boone County White for the following statesIL, KY, MD, MO, NE, VA, and WV. This is not to say Boone County White will only perform in these states, but it does let us know the USDA was impressed with yields in these states in 1936.
This is my first planting of your seeds and every one came up. Granted here in the south side of Atlanta, we have had a lot of rain, the plants are already 6 feet tall as they were planted on April 13. They are healthy and thriving. I can't wait to see the ears emerge. Five stars for this seed. I'll post a picture when the ears arrive.
