Raise your hand if you like beans.
Raise both hands if you LOVE beans.
I’m totally raising both hands right now. 15-Bean Cajun Soup….oh yes, please.
Pretty beans, huh? Yep, grew them all in my garden. Yeah right - I actually grabbed them at the grocery store. I sure wish they were homegrown, but so far I’ve only done snap beans and soybeans for fresh (or frozen) eating.
I’m determined to grow at least one variety of beans next year for a nice harvest of dried cooking beans. Any tips on which varieties to consider? We eat they typical black, red and white varieties commonly found at your grocery store, so I’m thinking I’d like to grow some less common varieties with some fun colors or markings.
What varieties would you suggest to grow? I’ve got limited space, so I would like a heavy producer, but as always flavor is super important.
