October 28, 2014: Here’s a short blurb from Edie about seed saving:

Seed saving is my passion, as it is a practice that allows us to grow varieties that well suited to our growing region. For example, selecting which varieties of beans to grow takes into consideration the many characteristics of this charming veggie. For example, consider both the flavor and size, will it cross with others, is it a bush or climber, is it a fresh or dry bean, does it preserve well, does it grow true in the next season? Select one or two plants to save seeds from and mark them, and do not harvest them during the season. That allows the beans to fully mature. Harvest when the pods are dry. Label with variety, year and other identifying characteristics and be pleased that the cycle can continue. Look for seed swaps with local garden enthusiasts in the early spring. We love to share.
