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.
sorry to say but planted a bunch of these in containers, 1/4 inch deep in 70 degree controlled environment and got about 5 % germination. not so good.
While having grown Jericho lettuce for 5-6 years, we had to find a new source. First planting in our greenhouse is nearly ready to harvest. This is good as it coincides with the CDC recommending all romaine purchased commercially be tossed (AZ grown, E coli issues). We are not tossing our homegrown! Best Romaine we've ever found, and enjoy it year around thanks to our greenhouse. Though we do prefer the taste when grown outdoors in our garden.
Have grown Jericho from Sustainable Seed for a few years and it's one of the best. Holds up pretty well in our harsh, hot late Springs and early summers (til July 1st). It's a sweet and crunchy romaine that we generally pick as a "cut and come again" before the heads form.
