Come again?

'Moonlight' A white-seeded runner....

Well, now seems as though someone, somewhere along the line screwed something up. Now, I know that runner beans are notorious crossdressers uh make that cross pollinators. But, seriously. I'm buying the seeds for a premium here people! These seeds are out of stock everywhere and have been since fall. So I paid $5 for 15 seeds (and got 2 packets!) only to get the WRONG seeds, or at least not pure seeds. This ticks me off.

Bad news is that I bought them at the end of season last year to plant in our cool winter to try to pull through our fall and into spring. At the time it seemed like it might be worth the effort. Now I think I've waited too long to do anything about getting my money back or an exchange. Good news is almost all beans are edible once they are cooked, I just hope they produce well. The moonlight bean is supposed to be a really fantastic producer.

Only time will tell. Until then - I can only have hope and faith in these little seeds. Maybe Jack's Beanstalk is among them. ;-)

See you soon!

  1. That is truly annoying. There is one seed company here that is notorious for putting seeds in the wrong packets - you buy one thing and get something kind of similar but not quite right.
