Better beans and bacon in peace than cake and ale in fear...

These are the words of Aesop - ancient Greek fabulist. Are they not true today?
Growing beans in own, peaceful vegetable garden is worth the work - beans are nutricious and tasty, can replace meat in diet and contain far less toxins.
I planted 3 different kinds on May, 26th. After 11 days majority of Blauhilde seeds sprouted, only 1 Piekny Jas (Beautiful Johnny) and Neckarkonigin is still asleep, which doesn’t surprise me - there is German word 'queen' in the name, maybe this is why – sprouting with dignity!

On the pictures Blauhilde – heirloom German variety, which takes 64 day to maturity. It has beautiful purple pods – one of the most intense available, changing to green color when cooked. Vigorous – yeah! - and resistant to bean mosaic virus.




Happy to see you Mrs Blauhilde - !
