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.|
