Composites and Mixtures

The idea of a composite mixture is a new concept I started exploring last season with the Gaspe’ corn. My desire was to increase the genetic diversity of a single variety, Gaspe’, using multiple sources of seed and growing them together in a block. The following composites are all “works in progress”. If you purchase any of these composites, you can grow and select for what impresses you, or you can continue to grow them as a mixture, allowing for continual crossing. Necessary Good Fun!

I am also offering one landrace barley mixture which is not a composite.
