A Michigan Heirlooms exclusive introduction - White Pencil Pod

"The pencil pods you gave me became a staple in the garden every year. It’s good up until it’s dry. No strings, not pithy/fiberish when older and it’s a heavy producer. It’s a beast in the garden. Takes over the whole trellis. The bucket in the photo weighed 6.5 lbs."

 

I received seed for this variety in 2014 from Lois Spiter of Milford, MI. She came to the greenhouse and handed me about 10 seeds telling me that she wished that she could offer me more but that what she gave me was half of the seed she had left do to the rabbits decimating her plants the year before.

 

In 1971, Lois purchased a packet of seed from Burpee's called White Pencil Pod. She has saved seed from that original packet every year since. Almost half a century later, Lois unknowingly created a true unique family heirloom that is regionally adapted to SE Michigan. As importantly, it is seemingly the only known WHITE pencil pod variety documented.

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.
