    Made a life customer

    My daughter and I have ordered seeds for a couple years now. We love the variety, the customer service and especially the native seed program. My grandson is learning so much about his native foods.
    I have yet to cook one of these beans. My grandson stands in the garden and eats them raw.

    These Fava Beans are Survivors!

    I made a mistake and planted these last fall. I thought they would croak with all the freezing weather we had. I covered them but the top parts froze anyway. The bottom parts survived and now have blossoms on them. Looking forward to fava beans in a couple months!
