Blue Lake Bush Bean Seeds

$3.00

The Blue Lake Bush Bean is an heirloom seed.  The original Blue Lake bean came from the upper Missouri River basin, where it was found growing wild in the gardens of Native Americans. This bean is about a 60 day plant.

Blue Lake Bush Bean Germination: Plant after the last frost, since pole beans are very sensitive to cold. Place the seeds 2″ deep and 10″ apart. Germination usually takes place in 14-20 days.

Growing Blue Lake Bean Seeds: Keep the soil moist to promote healthy plants and a productive yield, taking care not to disturb the blossoms as they are forming. Mulch helps conserve moisture, control weeds, and regulate soil temperature.  You can grow successive rounds of this plant through the first frost.

Harvesting Blue Lake Bean: Expect your first beans about ten weeks after germination. Daily harvesting improves production; for best flavor and tenderness, pick the beans when they are no larger than a pencil in thickness. Serve or preserve the same day you harvested them for the freshest taste.

Germination rate 90%, 2019 seed.

Why Our Seeds Are Different

Locally Adjusted Heirlooms

All our seeds are heirlooms that are proven to be successful and stable for long term seed independence. We believe that fertile seeds produce more healthy food. We save local family heirlooms from extinction bringing these hardy cultivars to the seed banks, the marketplace and people’s tables.

Local Small Business

We are a homegrown seed and plant company with a suburban farm. We use urban sustainable agriculture with organic materials and no pesticides.  We grow the plants and save the seeds, herbs, and fruit. We make our own packaging and sell it at the local farmers’ market.

Home Made Products

We make our own ointments and teas from scratch. We grow some of the ingredients ourselves and source what we can locally. We believe in the power of nature to help heal, soothe, and comfort.  Try our teas for a lovely relaxing treat or our ointments to help with inflammation, pain, and skin conditions.
