Germination Comparison of Turkey Red Strains

The germination comparison that I planted on October 7 is up well enough to get a good comparison now.  The first bits could be seen two days ago.

Wisconsin No. 2.  This strain has the most pronounced red color.

The Vavilov Turkey Red still has the red stem, but it's less brilliant.

The Ehmke Turkey does not have any red color, and the leaf blades are wider.

The Stephens is taking a little longer to germinate and does not have any red color, either.

The Spring Street field is still not up!  It was planted on September 18, almost a month ago.  There has been rain now so it should be coming up in a matter of days.
