DEAR BROTHER RUSSELL:-- wt1912
Last spring a brother in the West sent me a supply of pea-beans,
assuring me "they are very good." I planted them in
rows similar to pea-planting and find they bloom and bear
continuously from early summer until cut by frost in the
fall. We are still picking them for table use at this date,
We have more seed than we need. Am sending you a supply
for such of THE TOWER readers as have garden space and may
desire some to plant next spring. Should they wish to pay
the postage on as many as you could apportion, that would,
of course, be their privilege; I donate them.
I might state, the stalk resembles a bean stalk, but within
the long pods are peas, and suitable for cooking in the pods
green, or, after ripening, shelled. They are tender and taste
unlike beans or peas. We all like them. Until nearly ripe
the pods are stringless or nearly so.
In Christian love, your brother and servant in the Lord,
J. A. BOHNET.
this is after the miricle wheat i believe.
