I ordered seeds from the National Plant Germplasm System and have planted both the blue coco pole bean and a pole variety of fordhook limas. Has anyone else planted these varieties? What kind of luck are you having? Mine germinated nicely, but look to have some sort of fungus or virus problem....all of my other beans, squash, melons, tomatoes, and cole vegetables are doing fine. And they all share the same garden area. I'd like to hear how yours are doing. I live in zone 6 and have had my beans in for about 3-4 weeks now.
