Saving bean seeds

Saving bean seeds

Next up on the seed-saving docket is green beans. This is probably the very easiest vegetable to save seeds from, although shelling the beans is a bit time-consuming. Just wait until the pods are brown, remove the seeds from the husks, and let the former dry for a couple of weeks until all moisture is gone.
