Randy, that's surprising that you can't get kidney beans to soften at an altitude of 850 feet. I thought the problem was at high altitudes, like my 4500 feet. Have you tried a pressure cooker?
I just put in a seed order at Seed Savers Exchange for celery, a lettuce mixture, yellow crook-neck, amish pie squash (pumpkin), charentais melon, amish melon, and small shining light watermelon.
I've tried none of those before except the yellow crook.
Barbara, I can't help you on the goji bush info. My plant is only just starting up--if not dead. But I didn't realize it grew that big!
Spud, I used to grow kidney beans, but haven't for several years. I could never get them to soften up, despite soaking and cooking for hours.
FYI, I'll be "off the air" for two weeks starting Thurs., Apr 9. I'm taking my computer into the "shop" to be cleaned up while I'm cruising down the Danube. Hope I don't miss anything too important here!
Joan, just tooooo funny. Loved it. Works both ways and about many things or at least that is what I discovered.
SMILE A HUSBAND DREAMS OF BACKYARD CHICKENS, BY DAVID LANSING
"The best advice I ever got about my decision to raise chickens came from my daughter Paige. When I told her I was going to build a coop while her mom was out of town, she said, 'Build the coop. But don't get the chickens. Give her time.'"
Kathy, IMHO the 'herb' provides income for our prison system and as long as it does it won't be legal. A friend has breast cancer and is using it to endure chemo - small hit and she feels better. I'd be happy to grow some for her.
Spud, I did not know that about kidney or butter beans. My gosh, learn something new everyday!
Kathy, what a flood! The weather just won't cooperate with out gardening plans will it?
Thanks Barbara. There seems to be more snow coming down than was forecast, and I hope it keeps coming. My garden had received about 1/4 inch of water so far.
Chris, I was interested in the "wicked" plants also. I looked at Wikipedia to find them, and was surprised. I've forgotten or never heard about beans:
