Want a Bean Forum?
Dear bean lover,
This thread is the beginning of an attempt to remedy a need for a Garden Web forum devoted to beans. I am posting it in Vegetable Growing, Heirlooms and Harvest because those are the existing forums where IÂve noticed an interest in beans. Let me know if there are other forums where it should be posted.
Beans come in many species, many growth habits, many culinary uses and untold number of varieties. Like heirloom tomatoes, seeds of heirloom beans are easily saved by the home gardener. Bean varieties have been passed down in families for generations. Bean collectors have large numbers of varieties. This is different from, say, carrots, lettuce and radish.
Why not have a forum on Garden Web devoted to beans? Garden Web has forums for tomatoes, hot peppers and alliums, all of which are diverse, versatile vegetables having followings of serious, as well as casual, aficiandos. Bean growing is an area of horticulture which offers equally large opportunities for exploration and learning.
Have you been curious about the following? Do you grow them?
and many, many more
If so, letÂs ask Garden Web for a bean forum, whether you are a newbie or expert (IÂm the former). With your expression of interest, I will communicate the idea to Garden Web and support the request with data on previous interest in this topic.
Speak up here to support the idea. Thanks.
