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.

Poblano Ancho Pepper
Poblano Ancho Pepper (75 days)
Seed package contains 1/4 gram, about 30 seeds
Also called Ancho Pepper in its dried form, the Poblano is a pepper of many wonderful uses including salsa, grilling, stir fries or stuffed for chile rellenos and substituted in any dish for bell pepper. It is sweet, but with enough spicy bite to be in the hot pepper category.
Poblano peppers are upright 24' tall plants with fruits that are 4-5" long. One of the most popular peppers grown, when dried it’s most often used for chile powder. It is really easy to make your own by drying strips of Poblano in a fruit drier and grinding them up when completely dry in a coffee grinder. Presto!
Another good way to serve Poblanos is to char the skin and peel the char under running water and serve either stuffed or sliced and sauteed in any dish!
