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.

Minnesota 13 Corn
Minnesota 13(87 days)
A yellow dent corn with red cobs that is early maturing, but heavy yielding. Very uniform. An excellent dent corn, this is the 87 day strain. The other Minnesota 13 is a 102 day strain, but we think one is much better.
Rich Holman from Wisconsin has been successfully selecting seeds for earliness and yield on this strain of Minnesota 13. He has done a tremendous job with it and we are proud to offer it to you this year.
8' tall, slender plants produce 7-8" long, yellow ears with 12 - 18 straight kernel rows. Good standability in high winds. Medium ear placement. Protein levels at 10.5%
In 1936 Minnesota 13 was the most popular variety in the US Northern Corn Belt. It was said to perform at higher elevations and was even recommended in Vermont, Oregon, and New Hampshire. I'm EXTREMELY excited to try this here in Northern California. Our test gardens are in the coastal range and influenced by the cool pacific so getting dent corns to produce can be a challenge. I have very high hopes for Minnesota 13 especially since this variety was historically grown in Oregon.
