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 Wapsie Valley Corn
Organic Wapsie Valley(85 days)
This tremendous variety that has put OP corn back on the map has been traced back to Adoulf Steinbronn from Fairbanks, Iowa . Steinbronn stood alone when his peers were all going to hybrids corn. Victor Kucyk, who gives much of his life to the improvement of O.P.’s then continued the work. Many around the globe are benefiting from this corn variety started back in Iowa .
9 1/2' tall, strong, widely adapted corn plants with 7 1/2 - 8" well formed ears. Colored mostly a rich yellow, waxy color with some maroon ears and a few brown colored ears. 14 - 18 straight kernel rows. Outstanding plant health. Good standability.
Average C.P. (crude protein) 11%. Superior silage choice. Nicely finishes for grain where others won't. Has done well in dry years and is widely adaptable.
In 2000 Vic Kucyk of Dublin, ON reports 140 bu/acre and 12+% protein for is Wapsie Valley corn.
"....But the biggest surprise was a variety called Wapsie Valley. An old Indian corn. As near as I can figure about one in twenty cobs is a beautiful big red cob. That will make the corn cribs more colorful! In the old days at corn shuckings it was tradition for a young man to be able to kiss the girl of his choice if he found a red cob while shucking, well, with all them red cobs it would turn into a free for all! An extremely high protein corn and it sure did produce considering the terrible conditions it went through." Quote from the Northern Farmer
