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.

Triticale is a cross between wheat and cereal rye. Bunker is winter active, awnletted (reduced awn expression) variety used primarily as a green chop -whole plant forage, for hay, or for a very high yielding cover crop. Bunkers awnletted characteristic makes a more palatable hay than a fully awned (bearded) variety. When used and a cover crop, Bunker provides benefits similar to winter active varieties of cereal rye (i.e. AGS104 Rye and Merced Rye); high biomass production, weed suppression, greatly improved water penetration, and excellent cycling of residual nutrients. Bunker would be a considered a standard height cultivar. It can be planted in Fall and Winter in most area of California. Bunker should be planted in the Spring in colder areas, it will have the same growing season as Spring Wheat.
