Will trade for flowers or herbs.

The heirloom beans are all from seed savers. I ordered them this year but have more than my garden can handle.

Cherokee Trail of Tears - Black bean; Green 6" pods with purple stripes, good for snaps and dry beans. Pole habit, 85 days.

Golden Lima Bean - Similar in appearance to limas, but not a true lima. Pole habit, heavy cropper, 85-90 days

Asparagus or Winged Pea - Very interesting!! Not related to asparagus or peas. Pods best eaten when small - under 1 inch. Thrives in poor soil, pretty purple flowers, low growing and spreads laterally. Will tolerate a frost and continue to produce into the fall if kept well picked; 60-75 days.

Hidasta Red Bean - Shell bean or dry. Sprawling bush plants will climb to 3' if given support. 80-90 days.


Broccolie Rabe (Cima di rapa, quarantina)
Cultivated Dandelion - for eating in salads, etc.
