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.

Considered the standard in Malting Barley for MANY years.
1920 Berry's Seed Company says about Oderbrucker Barley... "...considered to be the best variety of barley sent out by the Wisconsin Station. Professor Moore declares it to be superior to the Manshury, yielding 5 to 10 bushels more per acre. The original stock of this barley was obtained in Germany by the Ontario Agricultural College. ...a stiff strawed, heavy yielding, six rowed bearded barley. It has a protein content of 15 per cent, or nearly double the amount of protein found in many other barley varieties. ...one of the best for malting barley."
1930 Dreers Seed Catalogs says about Oderbrucker Barley... "A productive and reliable six rowed bearded variety and an improvement over the old Manshurey."
