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.

Lacey Barley Seed
Hordeum vulgare Lacey Barley Seed
1 oz Package which covers about 30' square feet.
"‘Lacey’ a six-rowed spring barley (Hordeum vulgareL.) (Reg. no. CV-290, PI 613603), was developed by the MinnesotaAgricultural Experiment Station and released in February 2000.It was developed in a program to obtain low soluble proteinin a Midwest malting barley.
Lacey's malting quality traits, determined in collaborationwith the USDA Cereal Crops Research Unit at Madison, WI, andindustry testing in cooperation with the American Malting BarleyAssociation, appear to be similar to Robust, the industry six-rowedquality standard. The following quality comparisons are basedon data from 13 separate evaluations made from 1996 to 1999.For the malting quality trait of most interest, soluble protein,the values were 5.6, 5.6, and 6.7%, respectively, for Lacey,Robust, and Stander. Diastatic power is similar to Robust, butLacey is 18% higher in alpha-amylase and yields 0.5% more maltextract. Lacey is currently being evaluated for both maltingand brewing quality in industry tests coordinated by the AmericanMalting Barley Association.
Lacey was 16% higher yielding than Robust and 3% higher thanStander in Minnesota (1996–1999). In Midwestern regionaltrials (1998–1999), Lacey was 12 and 4% higher yieldingthan Robust and Stander, respectively. Percentage plump kernelsof Lacey is similar to Robust and Stander. In seven Minnesotatrials where lodging occurred, the respective lodging percentageswere 33% for Lacey and 42% for Robust. It is not as resistantto lodging as Stander."
