Everyone happy to send their seeds to me by the end of the month and enough for six?

Absolutely! I haven't got your address.

Wouldn't it be enough for five rather, as we don't have to account for ourselves?

Will post Friday , to the best of my knowledge the beans are dry , but I will pack in paper fingers crossed.
A short note .. cfb Williamís Tiger is the best bean for flavour ,vigour and abundance of pods ,picked earlyish that I know. Sometimes a veg falls out of favour for a reason but this one is a real star I should be able to pack at least two dozen seeds per envelope.cheers.

Mine arrived today. Thank you very much to Penedesenca for the care in organising and parcelling up all the contributions, and also to participants for such enterprising growing and generosity.
Very exciting! Such a lot of most interesting varieties including twenty-one varieties of tomatoes! This is going to be a delicious challenge of organisation and record-keeping. A lovely start to the season.
