Special Garden and Agronomy 23.jpg

4-H families have the opportunity to participate in the special garden and/or special agronomy projects this year. The Special Garden Project is Mrs. Burns’ Lemon Basil. Lemon basil has a unique lemon flavor and can be added to any recipe or to cut flower arrangements to add scent and interest. The Special Agronomy Project is Tepary beans. Tepary beans (pronounced tep-uh-ree) are an ancient crop, native to the northern part of Mexico and the southwestern part of the U.S. Beans can be multiple sizes and colors and offer drought tolerance other legumes do not. Seed packets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Call the Extension office at 402-441-7180 to sign up for these special projects. The seed packages are free and one seed packet per project, per family. Seeds will be mailed after April 30.
