Photo – Beans! It’s the beginning of Spring and time to plant beans of all sorts in the Blue Mountains. The photo shows a selection of classic varieties including those used both dry and fresh… including Magpie, Fort Portal Jade ( from Uganda), Anto, Blue Speckled Tepary, Speckled Cranberry, Black Coat Runner, Blue Lake and others. Beans tend to not cross very easily so you can afford to grow quite a few varieties together each year and have them stay ‘true’ to their own unique genes. There are so many different ways to use beans and it’s very much worth looking into the back catalogues of times past to see how much they formed the core of so many international diets.
It’s that time again!
This is just a quick reminder that the next scheduled meeting for the year of the Mid Blue Mountains SeedSavers is on at the Bullaburra Progress Hall this coming weekend.
