Beans of New York (and Oregon!)

My long-awaited "Beans of New York" text has finally arrived!!! Yippee! It also coincided with the arrival of 100 feet of reemay row cover for making my isolation cages, as well as the appearance of my Scarlet Runner Bean sprouts (I always start them early since they like cooler weather to set beans and need a loooooong season)! SPRING IS HERE!!!

"Beans of New York" is a wonderful reference for heirloom beans, and contains beautiful full-color plates of many varieties. Yes, there are flaws in the naming/descriptions/etc., but it is still a worthwhile read and investment.

P.S. - Soooooo many tomatoes!...
