The bean must be getting bigger, lol. Should be tasty. How do you save your bean seeds? Any tips about when to pick the beans for seeds and how did you prep them for winter storage and how did you store them?? Thanks Chris

I grew 2 100' rows of Provider beans...rabbits ate about half the harvest, but they did keep blossoming and putting out new beans.

What are the seeds on the right in the top picture...hard to see?

Non hybrid beans.

Let the beans dry on the vine. When casing is dry and brittle, pick beans. Shell beans. Winnow. Let dry on old window screens supported off the floor in garage. Package beans and store in cool dry space.
I have an excuse. CRS.
