2017 Potato, Dry Bean, & Garlic Storage Crop Varieties

INTERCROP & COMPANION PLANTING

The area in which we grow our storage crops consist of not just 3 separate mono crops but a collage of each of the 3 crops…Potatoes, Beans, & Flax. All the crops will be planted on 38” centers and all seed is certified organic seed.  Each row of potatoes will have a flax row & a bean row next to it. This particular companion intercropping arrangement is based on the notion that Flax improves Flavor and Growth of Potatoes & Protects the Potato Plants from the Potato Bug & Blister Beetle. The Beans help protect the Potato from the Potato Beetle & the Potatoes help protect the beans from the Mexican Bean Beetle. Even though we use more space & have end products like the flax that we do not profit from, I find that it is worth it to help ensure a good crop of Excellent Taste & Wonderful Quality! We know you will think so too!

Kenearly Yellow Bush Bean Heirloom

Annie Jackson Pole Dry Bean Heirloom
(Russian Origin) (Large, Plump, stunning half cream/half burgundy seeds) (Great as a Baking Bean)

Jacobs Gold
(This beautiful bean is the product of a stabilized cross between the classic Heirlooms of “Jacob’s Cattle” and “Paint”) (The mottled, speckled gold and white beans are about the size of pintos with a rich flavor and meaty texture perfect for hearty soups and chili.)

Rockwell Bush Bean Heirloom

Flageolet Vert Bush Dry Bean Heirloom
(Close relative of the Hungarian rice bean, which was grown on private estates to feed the European nobility during the winter months, was introduced for the International Paris Exposition in 1878 by French gardener, Chevrier of Bretigny. The shelled beans can be eaten (and celebrated!) in their semi dry stage as a shelly bean, and when they are fully dry. Reserved, as William Woys Weaver so aptly states, for elegant and sophisticated cooking (think cassoulet, crostini, risotto...), flageolets are intensely creamy, hold their shape when cooked, and cook quickly.

Rosso Di Lucca Bush Bean Heirloom Slow Food Ark of Taste
(Originates in northern Tuscan city of Lucca) (rossy-reddish-orange with dark burgundy speckles) (With its designated Slow Food presidium, fagioli Rossa di Lucca is part of the local food landscape and featured in hearty faro and vegetable soups, pasta & beans, or just simply cooked and served with sage and good olive oil)
