She Grows A Guinea Addle Lindsey saw pictured in a newspaper a bean weighing 18 pounds and measuring four feet five and a half inches in length. She simply had to have seed from it. She sent a letter to a city in Pennsylvania addressed to "the man who grew the big bean". It was successfully delivered and in due course of time Mrs. Lindsey received ten seeds from the huge bean, a variety from New Guinea. "I had expected large seed," she says, "but I was surprised to find them much like those from a gourd." Planted as early as possible in the spring, four of the seed grew,. "I covered them every night," Addle Lindsey~explains,~'but the cold weather made them very slow. They didn't make much growth for a full month." She followed carefully the directions she had received with the seed. She watered the plants twice daily and fed them both natural and chemical fertilizers. Lacy, white morning-glory- type flowers were eventually replaced by beans that grew - and grew - and grew. The first to mature hung low on the lofty vine, and it was necessary to dig a hole in the ground to accomodate its increasing length. The largest of the Guinea Beans, still growing, measures 45 inches and weighs 12 pounds. The plant is carefully protected against frost in order to allow the specimen to gain maximum size. Corn and cabbage and regulation-size beans also grow in the Lindsey garden and flowers surround the house. Variegated ivy brought from California twines across the front porch, and hardy fuschias flank the steps. "I'm nol housework, confesses, but outdoors."
