The Unofficial Start of Summer

Summer has begun! At least, unofficially, here at Reconnect Farm. What marks the beginning of summer for us? The arrival of the Rattlesnake Beans, of course! These amazing, prolific beans will keep producing more than we can eat up to the first frost. (We hope to sell some to you!) These are genuine family heirlooms, tracing back to Amie's grandfather's garden. They were kept in a freezer for more than 10 years after Paw-Paw died. We have no idea how far back these beans go, but it's not improbable that they go back to his farming days in Alabama back in the 1960's. They remind us that time is passing, and that each moment is worthy of cherishing.
