    PS.

    I’ve started.
    Saved some seeds from pods that a grown up the fence between plots.
    No idea the variety, but will to give them a go.
    Inside the pods were shiny pure black beans.
    Sometimes you just have to scratch that itch and get dirt under your finger nails.

    Can you make sure that the ones you save for the seed circle are a named variety?

    Will do.

    Picking the beans from the fence was just curiosity getting the better of me. Wanted to what they were and how well they dried. Last place I lived was too wet, not that I could grow beans outside anyway.

    Sorry, I'm having a comprehension failure. I don't understand the 10 - 15; 2 - 3 thing... is that 10 - 15 beans from 2 - 3 varieties?
