Ramshackle Seed Bank

This is the official Ramshackle Seed Bank (it could use some glue). It's mostly filled with half full packets from previous years, some gifts and some recent buys that still haven't made it into the ground yet.

One difference this year is that we've been saving more of our seeds and have just started to plant some of them. I'd love it if we could get to the point where we were refilling most of these packets each year.

Here are some Blue Lake bush beans about to be sown. This year I've gotten it straight that these are in fact bush beans and won't be waiting for them to climb any poles. These were delicious. I hope they sprout.

  1. Ha! Turns out I was a bit confused about my beans as well. I have been wondering why they're not climbing up their poles. Prompted by your post, I just checked and figured out that my variety--Empress--are also bush beans. Oh well, as long as I get some fresh picked beans this summer, I don't mind.
