Excellent Harvest

By: on 24 March 2015
I bought a packet of your Kentucky Beans 3 seasons ago, and this, their 3rd season has been amazing. I have a double row 1m long and have been picking delicious beans from 19.12.14 and am still picking about 4-500g every 2 days. I am really impressed with the strike rate after so long and also the huge crop I and a few neighbours have enjoyed this season. I am also growing butter beans and purple beans for for variety.
