My winter canning is winding down. But I wanted to get in one more batch of beans. These are the last of my home grown dry beans. The only one you can pick out in the picture is the dark Cherokee Trail of Tears. The rest were Mayflower Pole, Purple Podded Pole, and Old Homestead.
Of the beans I’ve tried so far, Cherokee Trail of Tears, Old Homestead, and Pinto were all pretty equally productive. I’ve decided to go ahead with Cherokee Trail of Tears (black) and a new one, Hidatsa Shield (white with a brown/tan belly) this year.
