I hear I have some new readers on my blog....so I wanted to give out a shout to the Tri State Growers in Mountain City!!! Hey Tri State!!
Now let me give you a little history about Tri State. First off it is older than I am - but not by much. It was started in 1945. They sell anything to do with farming and gardening. You name it - they have it.
On the farm, we bought almost everything we needed from the Tri State. The first of the year would be when we bought our tobacco seeds and canvas to sow the tobacco bed.
We also bought feed for the animals, fertilizer, and machinery. In the spring we would buy vegetable seeds.
A few years ago my grandchildren and I were planting a garden. I wanted them to experience the same kind of beans their great grandma and great great grandma had in their garden so I called Tri State to order a pound of beans. The lady that worked there went out of her way to make sure they were packaged and even called to see if I got them. We planted the beans and had great fun picking them and preparing them for dinner.
Here's a photo of those beans. They are called half runners and are the best tasting beans on earth. I could eat a whole pot full by my self.
That's it for today.
