    Great minds think alike! I was going to name one of my beans after the name of the community garden where my garden plot is , Jordan Creek!

    I have a few names in mind also but I'll wait until I get them and probably until I harvest some to see which bean gets which name. Some may earn a totally different name than I now envision.

    I also want to actually see what I get from Russ. One of mine, #39, looks like I may get three different beans to start with from that alone. I'll plant the different ones separately, keeping careful track of the number of course, and just see how they produce. This may be a Forrest Gump moment, opening a box of chocolates, both when I get Russ's shipment and again when I harvest.

    The above packet numbers are the one's that have been spoken for so far.

    @Tricia77,

    WB-PKT #28 has already been spoken for yesterday by NancyJ10x. Would you like to try a different one? The Schwarze Dalmatiner has already been dealt out to other growers last autumn.

    @Tricia77

    The reason you didn't see that some of the seeds were taken was because NancyJ10x peronal messaged me. Only I saw everything she wanted to grow.

    Russ, I'm not computer savvy enough to do this but can you edit the first post to show which ones are taken? I certainly do not want to change any photos but maybe someone can come up with an idea. The only thing I can think of is make a list of the numbers at the bottom of all of them and change font color if someone has taken one. It's more work for you obviously.

    From what I read if someone wants beans that have been taken they can still get some, it's always a good idea to have different people growing them just in case one of us has another disaster, so maybe three font colors. Not taken, taken but available, taken and none left.

    Just an idea.
