Yesterday was the day. I took out my seeds and sorted them all out for all you folks that wanted them. Yes they got mailed off. But I apologize. As I was doing the beans, I came across a problem. There were no Ottawa Cranberry beans to send off.
A few days ago we had left over Christmas ham. I only get a ham bone once a year, so it is special. I was wondering what beans to use. The Ottawa Cranberries seemed perfect. I was on a mission to make soup. Planting the garden was not on my mind. I totally forgot to save any for planting.
On the up side the soup was really good. My son even asked what kind of bean I used since they were so good. Really, really good. Luckily I have about 20 seeds left over that were from last year. So I can still grow them out next year. But I don't have any to give away. I'm really sorry. Sorry for all of us, as I was going to plant more than 20 seeds. But I suppose that gives me more room for trialing different varieties.
My beans seeds are rolling in however. I can't thank you all enough for sending them to me. I've also got about four picked out from the Seed Savers Yearbook, one from Fedco, and more promised from others. I'll have to count how many I have and see if I have enough space to trial them all. Maybe I should only order a couple from SSY.
