Welcome to Johnson's Home & Garden
The good old-fashioned baking bean. The largest and perhaps best of all the baking beans. One of the best varieties we know for use as a dry bean. Produces large, flat, green pods, filled with huge, red kidney-shaped beans that are rich in flavor. Excellent flavor when baked, boiled, used in soups and in Mexican dishes.
Planting Tips for Heirloom Beans:
50-60 days for green, 100+ days for dry beans. Beans typically need warm soil of 65° or higher. Grows best in full sun with well watered soil. Regular harvesting of the young pods will ensure a greater yield. Boost yields and germination by adding innoculants.
Avoid planting in soil that stays wet. Heirloom bean disease thrive in wet conditions, and the roots may not get enough oxygen.
Heirloom beans like soil that is slightly acid, about 6.5. This can be achieved by adding mulched pine needles, peat moss or sulfur.
Try wide row growing for bush beans.
Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
make your heirloom bean rows three across instead of just one. Three wide is perfect because most people can reach across that width. You can grow 3 times the amount of heirloom beans in the same space, you reduce the amount of area for weeds, and you'll save on water.
