The helpful lady at Standard Feed told me some time ago that their bulk seeds were non-hybrid unless otherwise marked. She also told me that beans were self-pollinating; meaning that I didn't have to worry about cross pollination and mixing strains.
This morning, I went out to the garden to pick some of the largest and fattest snap beans that I am going to use as seed savers.
When the four months are up and the beans are shriveled u[ and dry, I will shell the beans, and if I can't penetrate the skin with my thumb nail, the beans are ready for storage in a labeled glass jar. (Plastic containers or bags, and envelopes will also do fine.)
The beans are now ready for sowing. It is recommended that the seeds be soaked over night in water before sowing. It speeds up the germination, supposedly.
