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.

Known for years as an amazing healthful herb, comfrey makes a wonderful green compost tea for your veggies.
Soft and fuzzy, the leaves and pinkish blue flowers are great cut-and-come again plant for your compost pile or for your animals as a feed-additive. Don't cut back more than one third of the plants to keep them healthy while harvesting. This is a seed variety, unlike Russian Comfrey. We have extremely small supplies of this amazing herb that's been used as a skin healing agent.
Grows up to 36" tall, starting this seed is best put in your refrigerator drawer in a lightly sealed zippered lock bag with a bit of water. Keep it in the drawer for at least 3 weeks, but not more than 2 months. This cold period simulates the cold of winter and allows the seed to start germinating. Start seeds indoors barely under the surface of sterile soil in a warm place, best if on top of a heating pad set on low. Keep the soil moist from below in a shallow tray, or covered with plastic while the seed germinates. Seedlings should start to emerge in 10 days. Grow in pots for about 3 months gradually hardening them off to transplant and set in the garden.
Comfrey spreads by the roots, so be aware of the tendency to spread when you place in the garden, you might want to segregate the soil with a barrier of some kind. Some farmers swear by the amount of animal feed comfrey will supply if given the chance!
