Burpee seeds

5 posts in this topic

Anyone ever had this problem? Planted burpee broccoli seeds thinned to 10 plants. What grew was 1 broccoli and 9 cauliflower.  Planted and thinned kohlrabi which is what grew except for 1 bid weird kale looking thing. Just wondering if this happens alot im kinda new in this gardening game

not to me it hasn't.......to that extent anyway. that's pretty bad. I have had that happen when I've purchased seed bulk at the local hardware store, never when I bought seeds in  the little packets. and have bought several different brands.

Occasionally I'll get an off-type in some radish packets. A few times over the years in a transplant pack I've had a broccoli plant show up in a 4 pack that was supposed to be cauliflower. Otherwise nothing wholesale like you describe snagfinder.

I thought maybe it was just packaged wrong but what are the odds i got 1 broccoli if that was the case.  Hopefully the kid will eat it.

Can't say for sure how it might've happened. I know a few times over the years someone has received a bag of seed corn or soybeans that were traced back to a poor cleanout at the plant before starting a new variety or batch of seed. One time it was non-GMO corn that wound up in a pallet of Round Up Ready. Was a real mess after the field got sprayed with glyphosate. Fortunately the farmer saved the seed tags so they were able to trace it back and identify the problem. If you still have the seed packet you could contact the company to let them know.

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
