saving seeds

 

IMG_0599 (1068x799)This is the third generation of beans, saved for seed, from what was originally two packages of store bought bush bean seeds.  Unfortunately, I left the beans sitting on top of the refrigerator to dry, until today.  They did not all make it.  The dark ones have a pretty purple flower, the white ones have a white flower.  Will sort them before I plant them. Right now, they are in the fridge “cooling” off.  Am hoping at some point to be able to grow enough to have green beans to eat, dried beans to eat, and seed beans for the next year.  I do have some pole beans to plant also, but find the bush beans grow, harvest, and are pulled out – several plantings worth – before the pole beans are yielding.
