**Since Heirloom Seeds make great gifts I'm sharing!**
In Florida I have been experimenting growing different varieties at different times of the year. It's still 80 degrees here so I'm currently growing Pink Oxheart Tomatoes, Anaheim and Cal Wonder Bell Peppers, Green and Purple Basil. I just recently added Royalty Purple Podded Beans (new arrival at Mary's Heirloom Seeds) and they are AMAZING!
I soaked the beans for 3 hours. The pic above is approx 3 days.

Day 8! (above)
With a little water and Florida sunshine I'll have Royalty Purple Podded Beans in approx 48 more days! When they are mature they should look like this:
This morning I transplanted these babies into the garden and I'll share an update next week. For instructions on growing beans check our the Growing From Seed page.
