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.

Bright Lights Chard Seeds
Bright Lights Chard (56 days)
Want to light up your garden with a neon glow? Try Bright Lights Chard! Most folks grow this variety for the colors because they are amazing, but don't forget how tasty it is also!
Bright Lights Chard produces copious amounts of 18"-22" leaves in a wide assortment of colors. Use the small leaves just like spinach! Stir fry the large leaves with garlic and chicken. Your dinner guest will be wowed by not only the colors, but the flavor.
Remember to blanch the bigger leaves in a pot of boiling water with one tablespoon of salt for 5-10 minutes then drain. This virtually eliminates any of the bitter flavor you sometimes get in older leaves. Young leaves we use fresh in salads or veggie wraps.
Bright Lights is an outstanding chard that over winters here in the Pacific North West with no problem. Yes, growth slows down, but we keep harvesting it right on through the year.
