Three Bean and Bacon Soup

You ask...why three kinds of beans? Because I didn't have enough of one type of bean to make the soup, but the combination is really good. I used homemade bacon ends - they always seem to be super smoky and salty - perfect for flavoring soup, but store bought bacon or ham hocks will work just fine. Oh! Don't forget the cornbread on the side(:
