Dry beans are a great survival food crop. Yet we’ve had trouble growing them in the wet spring and summer. This year we’re trying something different by planting them in August for a harvest during the dry days of fall.
For a protein source in an emergency, it’s hard to beat beans. Today we plant pink-eyed purple hulls and dragon tongue beans. We also plant some chufa to see how it does.
