    do we have a little colour preference
    Brad's Black Heart is interesting, because it doesn't seem to be in the archive* (although I should get their latest list of varieties, I still use the 2009 version).

    *G. Bohls "Private Seed Archive" with about 2,700 varieties from all over the world, which is where I get mine from every year. I save seeds, send them back and swap for new varieties. Takes me months to browse their list!!! And no, they never got around to putting up a website.

    Okay everyone, your letters are in the post
    It would be nice to hear whether they all arrive happy and healthy.
    Let's see how fast the mail snails are these days, with Christmas coming...

    Hi Nellie, my seeds arrived this afternoon.

    Loved the packaging, Merry Christmas to you too.

    I'm really looking forward to trying these out and I will share my seeds next year.

    Good grief.

    I was expecting 4/5 BR seeds only!

    Nellie, that's so kind of you - thank you. I've had a quick blast on google translate to figure out what is what.. I was just about to order some of the seeds you've sent me too! double bonus.

    Great way of sending them too

    Thank you very much!

    I'll wait until we have the seeds from the tomato swap [I forgot about that] and send you some of those ones too.

    Hi everyone, you make me happy - it's nice to hear how pleased you all are! I admit I threw in a few unexpected surprises and I can't help looking forward to yours - although I did tell you not to tempt me, didn't I?

    Maybe I should let you decide which three varieties to choose from my wish list for the seed archive?
    I selected at least twenty, all colours, and have to boil it down to three or four at the very most, because that's all I can grow... and I just can't make up my mind, I want them all
    (and what's worse, I haven't even had a look at their list of beans!)

    Nellie
