    Another very requested seed is this yellow podded bean called "Lilaschecke" from a New York SSE member who has recently stopped listing in the SSE yearbook.

    Will post the rest of the South Flowerbed beans tomorrow.

    This one looks like it would be an attractive cooked beam. It looks nice and full plus those light and dark areas would contrast even after cooking.

    Try this again:barnie

    This looks very similar to one I received in trade 'John's Purple Polish' maybe the same bean? But like my pink seeded 'Grandpa Gerono' when I harvested seed it was a different color.

    John's Purple Polish also a yellow podded bean.
    Again I'm wondering if climate or type of soil made the difference.

    Another yellow podded or wax bean I've grown was found at a Seedy Saturday from a Polish immigrant who wanted others to grow it and help save this variety.

    Freshly harvested seed and dried pod, it's such a pretty dove grey almost pewter color when first harvested but does darken with age.

    And the addiction continues, :love those beans.

    Another bean I really like as a shelly, I think we can thank @Zeedman for getting this one back into circulation... Shellies are huge. The original info I have on this one...

    Seed Savers Exchange does/did? list Bird Egg #3. Donated to SSE in the early 1980s by Ralph Stevenson of Tekonsha, Michigan (MI ST R) who acquired this variety from John Withee of Lynnfield, MA (Wanigan Associates). SSE Accession # 102073. SSE BEAN 1772.

    Well, we got a light freeze last night. Yesterday I dug up and potted one of the healthiest plants of Hilo Laotian Lady lima, trimmed it back, and put it in a south-facing window of my sun room. She looks good today, no transplant shock, so I'll see if I can't coax a few pods out of her. I think I'll go ahead and mail out my other returns now rather than wait. @Bluejay77

    Annette I grew some of the Bird Egg #3 Beans you sent me last year. They are big and beautiful. Harvest was low because of the terrible weather this season. Thanks again :)

    @Ridgerunner,

    Would you like some of those Bregenzer beans. I had a great crop can send you some or anyone here that would like to grow them.

    Annette sent me some of those Bird Egg #3. Didn't get around to growing them hopefully next year.
