Heirloom Bean Project Wrap-Up

Now that fall is here the results of my summer heirloom bean project are in: a total yield of almost four pounds of beautiful dry beans of several types. In all I grew seven runner beans and five varieties of “common” beans in my suburban garden. Why the excitement? I think it’s fantastic to be able to grow a healthy, delicious, protein source in my own back and front yards. Besides that, I love the versatility of bean dishes, and the varieties are endless if you search beyond the grocery store. You can grow your own and enjoy cooking them all winter.
