Landrace: locally-adapted diversity

Hey all:

I've been planting like crazy the last week or so. Warm weather things are going into the ground as quickly as I can plant and keep them irrigated. Thanks for the seeds. It's great to see your screen-names on the seed packets of the new varieties, and on old ones returning home.

Today I planted runner beans among the sunflowers. The sunflowers were planted a couple months ago and are already about a foot tall. Last year I really liked having a runner bean climb on a sunflower. This year I planted a row more than 100 feet long.

The runners were about half new varieties, and about half that I grew last year (The first successful harvest after years of trying.)
