    Better that than being the one who assumes they're always right - because they never are.
    Just noticed your Battle of Hastings post count.

    It's 10-15 beans per person, per variety. Generally you will get about 6beans per bean pod.....so it's not as much as you think.
    I've suggested just saving one variety, in the hope we can encourage some more grapes to join - though often people save more.
    If we get 10 people to join you will need to save about 20pods - it's not many to be honest..
    You'l get 10 varieties back..
    It's a bit of fun and you get to try lots of varieties without having to spend a fortune.

    Ooooh that was deeply satisfying. I once went to a Battle of Hastings Re-enactment on the site... It was a big anniversary, I forget which, and there were HUNDREDS of re-enactors, including cavalry. Bliss.
