Organic Cayuse Oats
Certified Organic Cayuse Oats
Cayuse oats are a cool season, annual cereal grain that is typically grown here in California for a cover crop or livestock feed.
Organic Cayuse forms a nice crop of oats that is easy to hand harvest because it grows about 6' tall.
Oats grow best in cool, moist climates, yet are adapted to many climatic extremes. It is an excellent winter cover crop in the South and in areas where winter freezes are not severe, like ours here in California.
I buy these oat seeds because my kitty's love to eat the oat grass that sprouts from the seeds.I will put wet dirt about 2/3rds the way up in one of those Styrofoam pans you get when you buy a big package of hamburger,then I will sprinkle the oat seeds all over the dirt,then put 1/4 in dirt on top the seeds,I put it in a sunny window & keep it wet until it sprouts,then I allow it to grow for 3 to 4 days after the sprouts have grown 5 or more inches high ,then I will give the flat of oat grass to my kitty's to eat they love it.I usually start 2 flats,then a day or 2 later I will start another & so on so my kitty's have oat grass all the time to eat at their pleasure.Yes they are all spoiled.I would love to buy these oat seeds in bulk again by the pound like I have in previous years.
