I've been growing 'Barksdale' for the last three? years and it looks like they like our climate even when we have a lousy growing season.
This year although planted late they came on gang busters after the short hot spell we had, I even think I'll get a few seeds if the weather holds.
We've already had them several times for dinner, they are so tender they almost melt in your mouth. These I just picked, it's another winner in my book :) George these will be staying on my grow list for years to come. Annette

I understand, Keith. So many beans, so little time!

This is a very fine bean. Alas, when I grew these, I did not start them in pots and was not able to save seed. - Dick

RE: Thank you George!!!

Dick, these along with the Blue Greasy Grits were started in the greenhouse on May 26th, once they were planted out they grew quickly. When they should have been flowering we hit a hot spell, once it cooled down the flowers and then beans came in short order. I have enough seed for a couple of years so I'm not worried about seed this year, if the weather holds I just might get seed from both of these :). I still have to collect seed from several varieties but don't foresee any problems. Bird Egg #3 did it's thing again and I've already collected seed.
