Try Something New

I like trying new things once in a while that I haven't tried before. Sometimes they are a success and sometimes they aren't. I like to eat a specific lentil soup recipe, so I thought I'll try planting lentils. I planted the variety called O'odham lentils. It grew really well, but the bugs up north ate the seeds out of the pods at the end of the season, probably something that they don't have a problem with in the desert. I also tried Hopi Black Pinto beans and they did quite well despite all of the rain. I passed them on to family in Utah and they said that they grew even better in the dry Utah climate.
