I’m beginning to sow my first seeds in pots in the greenhouse, but it will soon be warm enough to sow outside. I’ve started to save my own seed from certain things, including beans. I’ve got a big jarful I collected last autumn, some to eat, some to sow. The speckled seeds in the photo are runner beans which are edible but not the tastiest dried bean you’ll ever meet. However, they are very beautiful - thanks to Mr Geoff for this pic.
