    Hi @Ridgerunner,

    I can't change the text on the bean photos because they are part of the photo file. Would have to resave them and redownload them.

    However here is the list of the one's that are already taken. I've been putting up and running list every few posts.

    WB-PKT #26 NancyJ10x
    WB-PKT #27 Ridgerunner
    WB-PKT #28 NancyJ10x
    WB-PKT #29 NancyJ10x
    WB-PKT #32 Ridgerunner
    WB-PKT #34 Tricia77
    WB-PKT #38 Ridgerunner
    WB-PKT #39 Ridgerunner
    WB-PKT #45 After Midnight
    WB-PKT #50 Tricia77

    I've seen that and its a pain I'm sure.

    What I'm suggesting is to hit the edit button on your first post and add that list at the bottom of all those photos. Sort of an addendum. Then when someone takes some more beans, edit that post again. I think it would be easier than what you are doing now, plus the information is right there when people are looking at those photos and trying to decide.

    This only took a few seconds to change color, highlight what you want to change then hit the underlined A (text Color) button in the menu above.

    Something like this maybe.

    Available

    Some taken, more available

    All gone

    Are the numbers part of the photo?
    If there not you can strike through the numbers that are not available anymore.

    Hi @Circle-M-Farm,

    The numbers are part of the photo.

    I've been doing new postings as to which numbers are no longer available.

    Hi @Ridgerunner,

    Thanks for the solution. That works real well. I used the three color sample numbers just below the photos. It used to be on the older EasyGarden.com that you couldn't edit a post after about 5 minutes. I didn't realize they changed that feature.

    Adam reporting in. I spoke to Russ and requested the following beans from the Easy Bean Network page in late 2015 for grow out this year:

    Large Chocolate Tepary - unk
    Orange Speckled Paiute Tepary - 2013
    Passage to India Pole - ?
    Botosani Cyclops - ? I think I finally was able to confirm was a bush variety, but these will get a trellis if needed.

    I'll also see if I can give a report on the flavor of Piet Special and Solwezi as green and dried beans.

    Hi @VA_LongBean,

    Have I sent you these beans yet? Glad you check in. I've looked all through all my email folders and I couldn't find any message about the beans you have just now mentioned. Things can get confusing for me sometimes. I try to stay organized, but I guess I'm like an AM Trak train, I jump the rails once in awhile. I can send you all the beans on your list except for the Passage to India. The seed is out on that one already to two other people. Would you like to pick another one?

    Hi @Bluejay77

    Yes, the beans came a long time back and I am just waiting for warmer weather. The recent change from unseasonably hot to unseasonably frigid has scrambled my gardening plans. The trial potato patch is barely holding on, though the potato onions are happy enough. :) Still, beans never go in around here before mid-May. I'm looking forward to growing tepary beans.

    Hi @VA_LongBean,

    The March and April weather have almost been doing a switch around for the last few years. March almost seems nicer than April. Then April seems to get colder. We don't have nice springs anymore like we used too, or so it seems. The cold around here seems to hang on way into May.

    Russ, I have the beans you sent me. I am waiting for warmer nights before I plant them.
