Grandma's heirloom creaseback cornfield beans
I planted some of my grandma's heirloom creaseback cornfield beans and yeahhhhhh, they are looking good!
My grandpa gardened until he was 91 yrs old and since he's passed away now, it's the grandkids turn to keep our family been seed going.
These beans came from my grandma who was born in 1914. She got them from her mother who was born in 1883, who got them from her mother. They were all from Appalachia area of KY.
I sent some of these seeds ( lots of them!) to Bill Best two years ago, but so far I have not heard back from him. He was happy to get them.
Grandma just called 'em creasebacks. I can't wait until they are ready to pick!!
Here's a photo of them at about 11 days after planting.
