Heirloom Foods: Lisa and Louis Harvest Calabrian Beans
Last night I saw my friend Lisa Anne tending bar at the Armand Hammer Museum and she gave me the long-awaited news that her Calabrian Beans are now being harvested for seed. Regular readers of this site know that her husband Louis has a strict policy of never sharing the fresh beans, but they WILL share the dried beans to be planted next year.
I am hopeful that I will be soon be receiving a seed packet of these magical beans so that I can attempt to grow Calabrian beans in my own garden. For a full report on the dried bean harvest, check out Lisa's blog Steal This Sweater.
