" I have too many" a worrisome squirm in the pit of my stomach - involuntary reaction when I read that )
without freezer space and only so much garden space each year i can renew only so many beans even if i rotate. with new project beans coming along all the time eventually i have to thin out my collection and let some go. in the past it has mostly been brown beans and out-crosses which aren't that interesting to me that i can let go but after getting rid of a few hundred of those i still have too many.
the annoying thing to me is that i have no way to know what are duplicates or not. if i could do genetic testing of each bean and have things on file at least then i would be able to know if i have something unique enough or a duplicate. but at this point it is a daydream for a hobbyist like me.
