Default Provider Beans for our veggie gardens

I grew Provider Beans last year and the year before…
I think they’re worthy of being added to a home garden and this article I found sums up why, ‘Dual-Purpose Provider Beans’, Grow the Change: Dual-purpose Provider Beans. “After shelling the Provider beans, I let them dry out until they were hard and cured. This late and unexpected crop yielded 4 lbs of beans. All told 200 row feet of Provider beans produced 103 lbs green beans, 2 lbs seed, and 4 lbs beans.” I didn’t grow nearly 200’ of them…. more like 10’ but… what those plants produced blew me away!!! Next year I’m thinking of growing 3 10’-rows just for the green beans these plants can produce!!! Nice taste to these beans too!!!
