The First Sister Sprouts at Coronado Historic Site: Mystery Beans!

At Coronado Historic Site, the first of the three sisters to sprout  in our native demonstration garden are mystery beans that no one planted.  Last year’s seeds have taken advantage of  the beautiful warm days  and a little much-needed rain to volunteer a new crop of beautiful, healthy bean plants.

Ranger Annie has been hard at work improving and cultivating the soil, and during the process, last year’s seeds must have been planted.  Two varieties grew in last year’s garden, and cross-pollination occurred as well, so we won’t know what kind of beans these are until they produce seeds of their own in the fall harvest.
