Growing, Preserving, and Eating Beans

January 6th is National Bean Day.  I’m sure you have a giant celebration planned.  While, I know most people (myself included) would let this day pass unnoticed, it did give me a nice way to share a bunch bean resources with you.  Growing, preserving, and eating beans are giant parts of our homespun seasonal lifestyle.  Beans are relatively to easy to grow, generally prolific, easy seeds to save, and are powerhouses of nutrition.  While I wouldn’t consider beans the basis for our nutrition or lifestyle, should some kind of disaster happen, beans would go a long way in keeping us healthy and progressing.
