Description from Baker Creek Heirloom Seed

(Avena sativa) In 1755, Samuel Johnson called oats: “grain which in England is generally given to horses, but which in Scotland supports the people.” Today, oats is a practical, high protein grain for the small place. Oats is easy to grow, but not so easy to thresh out, due to the hull which adheres tightly to the grain itself. The advantage to a hulless variety is that the grain easily comes free. Plant in early spring for grain, or in early fall to produce a heavy mulch right where the plants grew, as winter frosts kill the plants, and rain or snow knocks them down, producing a thick mulch all ready to be planted into in spring.
