Autumn Beauty, Lake Valley Seed (Friedman's) Height 5-6'

Mammoth Gray Stripe, Lake Valley Seed (Friedman's) 8-10' "Gigantic flowers & edible seeds"

I started these in Jiffy pots and transplanted in late May/early June. Snails wiped out the first batch along the fence. Heavy doses of Deadline and Corky's pellets helped about 1/2 of the 10 plants survive. I'm hoping for some bird seed from the giant ones. I also need to remember that these will take over the raised beds, so either plant them against the fence, or maybe I'll do a couple wine barrels next year and keep them segregated.
