    Ahhh... I don't think I'm going to have the time to do this before Friday! Job interview on Wednesday, so two nights of just prepping for that, friends over for dinner on Thursday and an essay for uni to finish for Monday. Stressed!

    I'm withdrawing the big red beans (?borlotti) as the beans haven't dried properly and are going furry. Nobody want to see furry beans Sorry.
    Will be sending Wizard Field beans and a meagre 5 Poletchska beans for each of you. I only had one plant so it was a struggle to produce these few. They're round and black.

    Enjoying the thread.... started planning for my full second year down here. Wind has been the big problem in the past, so will be looking at dwarf types to start with

    So I've read the link on post one and it seems that French beans are a good place to start. I've got plenty of ground, so can space them out easily enough.

    Out of interest, what beans are in the circle?


    I'll continue planning and start the search and see if anything takes my interest.

    French beans are good as they don't crosspollinate easily. Peas are easy too.

    This year's seeds are mostly in Post 1 - although they may not all be in at the end.
