RE: Dried Beans and Potatoes
Thanks for doing that. I see quite a few old favorites in there. We grow Yellow eye, Red Kidney, naval and once in a while some others for experimenting.

I buy new kinds from Vermont Bean Seed Co. We tried these several years back and they are our largest quantity and most favorite beans now. They have an excellent taste to them and grow very well.

Appaloosa! Both my wife and I have been around horses, and had our own, for 35-40 years. The Appaloosa was always my favorite, due to their color, disposition and history. So it was like discovering a new world when we found these beans.

Vermont Bean is a tad "pricey" but you only have to buy them once, then you can save seeds forever!

They are our favorites by a lot now. My wife makes a huge pot and we have them for one meal. Then she cooks up a couple pounds of our homemade sausage, along with onions, peppers, garlic and lots of other things, and turns them into "Chuck Wagon" beans, and they are to kill for. We have several friends that have tried them, and loved em, that now she makes two pots at time so some of our friends can have a bit of them too. They are quite a hit.

The older generations of my family raised a lot of the Jacob's cattle and that is about all I ate as a kid.

My dad was always "prepared" for whatever, probably came from his military service and the cold war during my youth. He always said if he could only save one food it would be dried beans as they are nutritious and almost indestructable!

If you need potato seed just give me a PM.
I usually grow around twenty varieties, not counting my experimental lines.
No need to feed the GMO paranoia at Fedco.

Ugene, I have been having trouble with scab even while planting so called "scab resistant" varieties. What do you recommend?

It is safer to grow your own food.

ISIS Urges Supporters To Poison Food At US Grocery Stores
"Aside from the obvious death toll, we imagine that a terror attack in an American grocery store would annihilate billions in grocery stock market cap, adding to the industry’s Whole Foods Market-inspired woes. Investors who once saw grocers as an oasis in the troubled retail sector are increasingly balking now that Amazon has promised to use sensors and automation to save on staffing costs and undercut rivals on pricing. And the terror threats won’t help."

RE: Dried Beans and Potatoes
I remember the poisoned Tylenol some years back......and the utter PANIC that caused. I am surprised that they have not already done it. Only need to hit one package here and there, and nobody else would buy the rest......great terror tactic!

We produce as much food as we can as you control that process TOTALLY that way and know what you are eating!
