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.

Organic Hard Red Winter Wheat
Organic Hard Red Winter Wheat Seed (Buckskin)
Winter Planted Wheat
Buckskin is moderately early maturity. It has high yield potential over a range of environments.
Developed in 1973 cooperatively by the Nebraska Agric. Exp. Station and the USDA-ARS. Jointly released in Kansas.
Buckskin is an awned, white-glumed variety. Awn color vaires from white to black depending on the season. Beaks are long.
It is slightly talller and about a day later in maturity than Scout 66, but it has better straw strength.
Buckskin is moderately resistant to soil-borne mosaic, stem rust and Hessian Fly. It is susceptible to leaf rust. Similar to Scout 66 in winter hardiness.
It is a strong gluten variety with excellent bread baking quality. Plump Hard Red Wheat Berries with 13% protein can be cooked as a whole grain cereal or pilaf, sprouted for salads or juiced, or milled into flour by the home miller.
Buckskin was the most popular winter wheat variety seeded in Wyoming for the 2013 crop with 34.7 percent of the total winter wheat acreage.
Planted in late November in NC. Germinated and grew perfectly though the winter!
Germinated as expected and arrived quickly
My first try growing wheat
I planted 10 square feet of hard red winter wheat on October 19, 2019. The attached picture was taken on December 14, 2019. (I live in Texas.) As far as I can tell it is doing great! It sprouted within about 4 days. I can't wait to see it when it turns golden.
