I've got my very own bean!!

I was delighted to get my seeds from the heritage Seed Library this morning, succeeding in getting all six of my choices, plus a free packet as a bonus.
One I ordered is called Sarah's Old Fashioned Black - a climbing French bean - I had to get it with that name, didn't I? :)

So, I'm looking forward to seeing how it does. The rest I got were Lazy Housewife - a great bean, and called so because it is easy to shell when dried. I've grown these before, but needed to reinvigorate my seeds, so ordered some fresh; squash Virginia Rooster - ordered because I like the name, no idea what it looks like though; Yellow Intermediate mangel - for wine making and goat feeding I hope; Striped Bunch climbing French bean - to add a splash of colour; Wild Pigeon bean - again, I've grown these before, but due to a crop failure had no seed saved. I was lucky enough to receive another climbing bean - Bridgewater - as the bonus free packet. I will need to get lots of beanpoles cut in the next fortnight for that lot!
