    Looking at the list you've got already, I'll go for
    Parsley Peas
    and Cranberry Pole beans, with maybe other peas once I check my seeds.
    I could not live without a garden, it is my place to unwind and recover, to marvel at the power of all growing things, even weeds!

    So do I, I haven't got your ones !

    Start thinking about getting the pods dry in late August: I strip off any remaining foliage in Sept to allow air flow
    If your autumn is damp, get the pods inside on newspaper, not in the kitchen or damp sheds.

    Yes happy to join in - roughly how many seeds should I be saving?
    I plan to do Golden Yellow Mangetout, and probably Rocquencourt DFB
    Mind you - it depends a bit on how well they grow, and how many we eat (only got a small veg garden, so I'm a bit limited on space!)
