Surprise bean harvest

Post  Retired Member 1 on 5/20/2010, 6:11 pm

I went outside to water today and decided to see if any weeds were coming up in the squares of bush beans I have planted. To my surprise the heirloom dragon's tongue beans were ready to harvest. I'm so glad I decided to look for weeds since the plants are so close together the beans were completely hidden. This is the harvest from two squares:



About three servings. The nice thing about dragon's tongue is they will continue to produce another medium harvest then sporatic for a couple of months. I have another two squares, and I think will put in two more. They are such a lovely bean.

Neat! I almost got some Dragon's Tongue seeds for this year, but I figured out at the last second it was a bush bean and I wanted pole beans. The Dragon's Tongue beans are so pretty!

How many plants did you put in per square?

Those are beautiful beans
I looked them up and read that they have a buttery taste. That's amazing. It's hard for me to imagine a bean w/ a natural butter flavor.
I'll have to plant these next time. I planted Asparagus Beans and Kentucky Blue this year.

Wow! Those are beautiful! Smile My poor beans look like they've been shot with a shotgun, but they're still growing.

Those are wonderful! Really interesting. Are they similar in taste to a green been?

What a great suprise! I might have to try some for next year. Good thing my family loves beans. I am traditional in my bean selection this year, but it is the first time I have tried to grow beans since I was a teenager - pole, bush green, bush wax, and lima beans for now, and I have fava beans to plant in the fall. Yum - but these look and sound fabulous! Thanks for sharing
