    @Lady0bug,

    I'm not going to grow Eden Prairie this year, but if you could send some new seed in the autumn then I could use that for growing perhaps next year.

    Well the list I was going to put up later in the day wound up being a few days later. Any how I got this of Bush beans and semi runners and few more pole beans. No photos but some are on the website from A-Z pages. I never took photos on a lot of these as I stuck them right into the freezer when they came. Most of but not all of these seeds appearance could be improved by a grow out. When the new seed comes back I'll photo them and include them on the Network page. There will a Network Page 6 added.

    Buckskin Girl
    Maggies Cresent
    Rose D' Eyragues - Small Cranberry type
    Larson Family Swedish - Cranberry type

    Peau de Wache Normande - Same pattern as the above but brown and white
    Davis - Wax snap bean
    Prince - Red Cranberry type. Snap bean that needs to be picked early to avoid strings.
    Lila Stuart - Dry bean
    Best Of All Wax - snap bean
    China Yellow - Round light yellow dry bean

    Fisher - Pennsylvania Amish bean
    Schoko Flecken - Pretty round seed sort of almost looks like a small Maria Zeller from Germany.

    Semi Runners

    Ojibwe Black - Another black turtle type bean said to have been grown by the Ojibwe nation in .......................Minnestota.

    Pole Beans

    1,500 Year Old Cave - Looks like Anasazi bean.
    Ottis Stuart - Pole Snap bean a lady in Australia sent to me.
    Blaugraue - Dry bean with bluish looking round seeds.
    Blaue Wolf Egg - Runner bean I got from a German guy. Shouldn't be grown in a hot climate Pheaseolus............................Coccineus.
    Munachedda Pale - Rounded Italian bean white with light pink area about the shade of Cottontail.
    Splash Trout - Doesn't have trout pattern at all but looks like Lynnfield.

    Thanks for posting the bush beans! I think I'm finally decided...

    Network Beans:
    Galloway; Frost; Schoko Flecken; Lila Stuart; Ojibwe Black; and Night Star if you have it (it looked like it was on the website as 2013 seed, but let me know if I should pick something else).

    Extras: Buxton Buckshot, Bird Egg Blue, and Berry's Best.

    Thanks again, Russ -- I'm super excited for the next bean season! :)

    I still need to post my bean photo show from last year... hopefully in the next week or two I'll be able to catch up with photos. Been renovating the living room all winter, but thankfully the end of that project is finally on the horizon!

    @flowerbug,

    Fisher

    This versatile and productive bush bean with indigenous roots was first cultivated by Algonquian peoples before finding its way into European gardens and those of the Pennsylvania Dutch community. This variety that was stewarded by the Fisher family is the same bean described by von Martens in 1869 as Eierbohn (Einbohn), or All-in-One Bean. Used as a shelly when very young, Fisher is traditionally grown as a dry bean and served prepared in hearty winter dishes such as Mrs. Higgins' classic cassoulet whose recipe appeared in the 1887 The Home Cook Book:

    The bean has rounded light buff colored seed with a prominent purplish eye ring.
