Do any of you grow seed either to sell or to use yourself? I have a nice heirloom bean that an old customer of mine gave me. He said that as far as he knows he, his father, grandfather and great grandfather grew them and passed them down. I lost my seed stock and finally got some again from his widow and daughter. Last year I tried them and lost them. (none germinated) His widow told me the seed was really old. She got me a baggie full from her daughter this year. They are much fresher but I a doing a germination test. I really hope to keep this bean going as I can't find it online anywhere. Then again, without a name to search for it's nearly impossible. I'll see if I can get a pic of the seed and plants and more info over the summer.
