Care to share which bean it is that you like?I've enjoyed ordering from http://www.artisticgardens.com/catalog/ for years. Their sample packs are a great way to test drive something different. I found "my bean" there. Bought it as a sampler several years ago and grew out some of my saved "stash" this year. It stores well in the fridge and freezes beautifully; best of all, no strings!
Not at all: aiguille verte. Bushes produce copious amounts of thin beans in a short time. Due to circumstances beyond my control, my summer garden was 350 miles away; I didn't plant many and mulched but had to leave them to fend for themselves as you can see from the surrounding weeds.Care to share which bean it is that you like?
Beans are expensive primarily due to shipping costs. I could mail 10,000 tomato seeds for less than 40-50 beans. One ounce of beans would require special packaging to protect them and cost $1.17 postage at package rate. Any price less than $2 for an ounce is a bargain.I've been looking for some beans. Man oh man, are they high priced! What I was hoping to do was plant enough to eat some, sell some and store some seed... but not at these prices. Is my only option to buy a few and save all I grow for seed?
