Jean-Léo Collard climbing bean (Phaseolus vulgaris)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
At a Seed Festival, I sat next to a friendly-looking old man. Soon we started discussing seeds and commenting on our purchases and finds! This is how a beautiful friendship was born that lasted more than ten years. Terre Promise was only in its infancy, and very quickly Jean-Leo Collard embarked on the project by tinkering with us an incalculable number of tools and machines specific to seed cleaning and bagging. He marveled at the generous harvests of the farm, he loved to talk about gardening and above all, he took me to eat at his favorite restaurant, Chez Willinsky. Jean reassured me in the darkest moments, when it's difficult to be an entrepreneur and I wanted to screw everything up... He believed in the Promised Land. Jean left us this fall 2021 at the end of a full life. In his honor, we decided to name a variety of beans developed on the farm for a few years, a mixture of the dwarf bean Velor and an unknown climbing bean. The Jean Léo Collard climbing bean has a beautiful deep purple color, sometimes mottled with green. It is cordless, quite long and very thin, crunchy to the bite. We are very proud of it! Thank you Jean for your unconditional support and friendship. Garden in peace.

Plump lettuce (Lactuca sativa)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Sometimes mixes happen on a seed farm. That's what happened one day in spring, when we planted our Moroccan Cressonnette lettuce seeds, grown the previous year. A lettuce had much "plumper" leaves than the watercress, in addition to being very large and having very light and crisp foliage. We collected the seeds and for a few years we selected this fortuitous mixture. We named it Grosse Dodue in reference to its foliage but also because the Grosse Lazy Blonde lettuce grew not far from there. It was perhaps with her that the love story began... In short, Grosse plump is therefore totally Quebecois, new and delicious. Try it!
