    :frow hi all.
    Newbie to both the site and pretty much growing food in general.
    I have some Kentucky wonder, red kidney and some type of white bean planted (a unnamed gift).

    I got them all sprouted on my kitchen cabinet and then planted outside.
    They are all about 6 inches tall now.
    Can't wait to see how they do.

    @Kiki welcome to the wonderful world of beans! I had no idea how many different types of beans there are until I joined TEG. Now I grow for Bluejay77 every season to help keep old varieties alive. I hope your beans grow well for you and you get lots of beans!

    Hi Kiki :frow

    Nice to have you come on the the website and this thread. Let us know how your beans progress through the season. Maybe you would like to put up some photos of your beans. Are you saving seed of your beans?

    Wait until our seed crops start to be harvested. You will see some beautiful seeds shown on this thread. You'll love it.

    Hi everyone! This will be my second year participating. I really enjoyed being a part of the grow out last year with Will's beans. I will only be able to help out with 2-3 varieties this year. I already committed to growing out some of the rare Lobitz varieties for Stephen Smith at SOPI. I will probably grow out Bubblegum and Blue Heron from Will's growout last year. I also have a Maggie's Crescent outcross and Ugandan Bantu outcross I found last I want to grow out. Happy gardening!!!!!!

    Good to see you back Tricia. If I remember right, Russ said he's growing out your Bubblegum and my Karachaganak this year. It will be interesting how his results compare to ours.

    We're getting some mechanical work done now on our vehicles and have some work to do on the house but I am really hoping to finish the garden fence and get everything planted by next week. Expecting family this weekend so we'll see.

    @Kiki what part of the world are you from. We always start out plants by seed in the garden but I do like to soak and maybe sprout mine a little. I once planted Kentucky Wonders in mid-July and had green beans by August. I mulched heavily and only watered a couple of times. We also always pick late in the afternoon while the plants are bone-dry to keep from getting disease. Oh and up a fence where they grow quiet tall.

    Hi @Tricia77, Glad to see you here again. What did Stephen give you of Robert Lobitz to grow. I'm curious. I think Stephen feels that same as I do about keeping Roberts beans alive. In about a week or so I'm going to post about three or four of Robert's beans I didn't have I found being grown by an Australian seed company called Inspirations Gardens. They have a website. They don't list the beans as being from Robert Lobitz but I recognized them by the names.
