How to Have a Perfect Day

Take 1 mini muffin tin
add 8 types of heirloom beans

May Flower and Poltschka Pole Beans. I think they are sorted by size.
Gold Rush and Cannellino Beans sorted by colour.
Poltschka beans from the populuxe seed bank.

Zooey guarding his bee house and the first new bean trellis.
Then she took a miracle nap.
So I got to admire our great find…

If you need some of your own beans, please check out the Seed Bank’s Etsy shop.  All money raised from the selling of heirloom seeds go towards supporting the seed bank’s efforts to preserve heirloom varieties.
