Beans are an excellent source of dietary fiber, protein, Vitamin B and potassium; all nutrients our bodies need. Easy to grow in a variety of conditions, beans are an important part of the home garden. With the many different varieties, there is something to please even the most finicky eater. There is a French saying "La fin des haricots." Literally translated as "the end of the beans". It means that the situation is disastrous, that it's all over and that all hope is gone. So make sure your garden includes one or more varieties of tasty beans so you don't run out.
