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.

Protein content 19.9% Height 38"
As described in 1889 (see photo)
"This new and distinct variety of oats was made by Mr. Pringle several years ago, by crossing the Excelsior with the Chinese Hulless. In it we have a combination of good qualities which cannot fail to please-a short stiff straw and along full head or panicle. In the Progress oat we have a head averaging as large as the largest of the taller varieties, well-filled, and being so much shorter, it does not lodge, In our trial plot of about 20 varieties of oats, the progress matured nest to the Early Lackawanna oat. In the spring of 1886, from one and 3/4 bushels drilled in on a rather poor soil, 162 bushels, threshers measure, were harvested. Progress oat will suit every time. Horses seem to like these oats much better than most sorts, probably because of the thin and tender shuck."
