I am very happy to report that the seeds for the research in my fodder book have been ordered. I ordered a large variety of various seeds. I of course got the regular common seeds. And I got a few other interesting seeds. With any luck these will get here soon and I can start growing the samples straight away in the small home system I have planned for the book (a kitchen sink style system).
Here are the seeds that we picked up for our first set of samples. These were all ordered on Johnny’s Selected Seeds.
I was unable to locate BOSS (black oil sunflower seeds) at my regular seeds supplier which is high on my list for findings. Oddly enough, while at lowes picking up our fodder room supplies, I found BOSS being sold as bird seed. I am not sure if it is sproutable…but will find out very soon.
I will let you know as we make progress on our fodder room (all the supplies were purchased for that today) or as the seeds come in. Either way - exciting times on the farm.
