It’s just so lovely at this time of year. We love our strolls through the medicinal garden at #UW chatting with Keith. Without him, we wouldn’t be able to feature such interesting and unique ingredients throughout our tasting menu. 💚🌿🌱
Frank’s Pea, the 1850s gold rush heirloom that captured the heart of the Diggers community is in production in our certified organic garden. Diggers original seeds were provided by octogenarian and member, May Barnes whose family has grown the pea since the days of the gold rush. A vigorous plant with spectacular mauve flowers, Frank’s Pea is a delectable snap pea while young which matures into an equally delicious shelling pea.
Pop this one in your annual garden plan; seeds harvested will be available to Diggers members late spring. ☺️
This is my second year growing greasy beans, a classic Appalachian staple. Essentially they’re heirloom green beans prized for their big, protein rich beans inside of a smooth pod, hence the name greasy. These were grown from seed given to me by a man who’s been farming them for thirty years out in Canton, NC. He said he received the seed from his father, who received the seed from his father. I feel so honored to be a part of this multigenerational stewardship of Appalachian heritage. #seedsaving#greasybeans#appalachiangarden#appalachia#gardening#gardenproduce#growyourown#growfoodnotlawns
