I'm always excited to be trying out new heirloom varieties in the garden but I'm really excited to try the Tuscarora Bread Bean, a Native bean variety, this year. Read my newest article for more about it as well as links to the bean bread recipe and info on a source for the seeds:

Planting pole beans this year?

If you are not planning on doing a 3 Sisters garden style of planting for the pole beans in your vegetable garden this year, you may like my recent article on a companion underplanting for pole beans. It was a lucky happenstance for me last summer and I plan to do it again this year.

You can find the article on my blog. Enjoy!
