    I'd just do what [I assume] most people do and pick the veg that you like to eat or that you like the sound of....and we'll help you through the 'saving' part of it.

    They were sent to me in a seed swap. I'm not intending to grow them again as although the peas were very sweet, they suffered from pea moth. You are welcome to them if you pm your address. If I could be mithered to sow them earlier (or later) I would probably miss the moths but I tend to sow all mine at once.

    If anyone else would like some Carruthers, let me know and I'll split them up.

    I'll pull my list together after I have done the SS Spread sheet and PM's...

    Not got as much as you and Aunty Flum have but we will see
    Never test the depth of the water with both feet

    The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory....

    Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

    I have enough of Cherokee and Yin-Yang climbing beans to send some out now. I save plenty and use them as dried beans in winter.

    I also have quite a few Bird's egg but they are so good as shellies that I'll be growing a lot - I could still spare a few packs of 10 though, like HSL send.

    I feel seed poor in comparison to you all Although I notice I'm growing a few of the same beans - Trail of Tears, Monastic, Yingyang, so I'll make a concerted effort this year for seed saving from them. The rest of my beans are too boring - Bird's Egg, Lablab, Purple Giant. I do have on the tomato front - German Red Strawberry and Anna Russian (both heirloom but not HSL), so if non HSL seeds are allowed I've got spares to share. PM me. Again if non HSL is allowed I have a 1m x 1m raised bed of Potato Onions which will be ready later on next year for sharing. I'll leave it with the gardening gurus to decide what to grow and what not to grow in the seed circle. I've set aside 2 1m x 1m beds (perhaps some dwarf beans?) and some space for toms for seed saving within the seed circle. Next year I'll be on the mooch
