There's a problem with planting 9-year-old bean seeds--they don't germinate very well.
I am an inveterate saver of seeds, and sometimes the seeds are a few years old before i actually get them into the ground. Today i'm replacing them with 6-year-old bean seeds that i've soaked in water for 24 hours. Hmmm. Wonder how they will do?
I love green beans, and i especially love these thin French filet beans. The time for planting seeds of kindness is now. Don't delay!
