Do you save seeds?
I try to save a few from my plants each year, and I am ever so grateful when Spring rolls around.
Not only does saving seeds save money, but you can pick seeds from the healthiest plants and therefore have the best seed source for the following season!
Lily and I picked a few climbing green bean pods that were drying nicely.
To save beans, just leave a few of your healthiest plants after harvest,
Within about 4 weeks, the pods will dry.
Pick the crispy pods that have rattling beans inside.
Some people suggest drying them in a cool dry place for another 2 weeks before cracking open to save the seeds.
I am a bit of a rebel and just make sure the pods are REALLY dry off the vine.
Crack open and store beans in a paper bag or Ball canning jar with a loose top!
Hope you are having a lovely start to the Fall season!
