    Hi I was wondering if you by now had enough of that odd multicolored sport bean you got out of the Fort Portal Jade growouts to share a little (the one I suggested be called Ugandan Discussion)

    2021 Little Easy Bean Network - Bean Lovers Come Discover Something New !

    I may have gotten some new, interesting beans today. I just received a large order of mixed tropical seeds for jewelry (though many are still viable, and I may plant them). And mixed in among them were a few common beans (as well as a few lablabs). I have put them away, and will try them in the...

    There also sometimes seems to be a problem with consistency. With the sheer number of different strains out there, it can be hard to keep track of what you have, and labeling mistakes can creep in very easily. For example I remember when I was getting Navajo Robins' Egg corn, if I ordered it...

    The TYPE of Fava is called a fingerprint fava, the specific variety you are thinking of may be Ojo de Dios. I occasionally find striped soys in my hunting (though not as much now) Soys also seem to have the ability to be mottled/speckled (usually red or yellow on a black base) or have a seed...

    A Seed Saver's Garden 2021

    I think I may have such a strain. The chickpeas I call "sticker chicks" have seed coats covered with numerous small sharp protrusions such that they will stick to surfaces like Velcro. This makes them VERY hard to clean if they get dirt on them (as well as meaning you can't wear a flannel shirt...

    A Seed Saver's Garden 2021

    I know that the little manila envelopes are called coin envelopes (at least that's it says on the box when I buy them at Staples). Odd considering you would not want to store a collectable coin in one (since they aren't acid free). I don't know where they get them, but some of the restaurants...

    A Seed Saver's Garden 2021

    I wasn't saying it was. I was just trying to point out that it WOULD be unethical to FORCE people to save seed. As you say it is a tragedy that so many varieties are lost, but when it comes to what to DO about it, I was trying to say that saying to people " You HAVE to grow this, because your...

    Somehow, It's Funny that Way

    That brings up an interesting question. Since I love the smell of cilantro, why doesn't the smell of stink bugs make me hungry?

    Ah THAT sort of gets into the deeper philosophy of seed saving, and how much it is ethically permissible to ask in the pursuit of preserving varieties. After all the most efficient way and place of keeping a variety around is in it's place of origin. But what happens if no one there wants to...

    Thought of TEG Cat Owners

    Actually, I'm 99% sure the other cat's a girl. One, nearly all calicos are female (basically, because of genetics the only way for a calico to be male is if it is an XXY mutant) And 2 back when it first started to show up, it had a heart shaped collar tag (it seems to have lost it)...

    Thought of TEG Cat Owners

    Our current problem is that there is another cat that has been coming around (a calico ragdoll, I think) and every time Juniper sees it, he goes crazy ( He HATES other cats in his territory). So the house has gotten a little loud with Juniper standing by the window hissing at the other cat, and...

    Garden humor thread..

    Reminds me of when one of the late night TV people informed the public that his theme music was called "Glitter and be Gay" (from Candide)

    Price increases and shortages

    That really won't happen. Remember it said Arabica was affected, not coffee in general. Robusta is a lot tougher that Arabica, and so is probably doing fine. So coffee isn't going away, it's just going to taste like crap. Or maybe they'll start experimenting with the other dozen or so species...

    Memories of the old times & unsolved mysterious

    That reminds me of a joke The minister was examining the creche that one of the parishioners has put together for the Church. He asked "Why are the Three Wise Men wearing fire helmets?" The maker replier, in a Southern drawl "Cuz Yyall said "The Three Wise Men came from afar"".
