The garden is winding down and it's been a long while since we picked green beans. The stalks for the heirloom Rattlesnake green beans are still standing and there are always a few beans that we missed or that I leave on purpose to save the seed.
Here is my pile of beans I picked. On the outside they are brown and ugly looking but believe me it's like gold on the inside. Seeds can be very expensive
I just take out the beans on the inside and let them dry a few days more on a cookie sheet on my table.
I store them in a container (this time it's an empty nut canister) in a cool, dry place. You'll have to excuse my big thumb!
Do you save seed for next year?
