    I was doing a quick search for pencil corn and found this site. I thought some of you might be interested in another heirloom seed source.

    Hey Fla Gal;last year I bought a lot of beans and pre civil war peanuts from them.They send seed in a box and are really prompt.If you want really great tasting pole green beans get the cut short greasy beans.-

    cut short greasy beans? I sure hope they taste better than they sound. Thanks for the info. We may order some from them, maybe even the beans.

    cut short as in the beans run into each other in the pod and get a square, 'cut short' look.

    'greasy' as in the pods are non-hairy/shiny.
