I was planting beans - Blue Lake bush beans, Certified Organic. Opened the package and it contained three (3) beans!

Do you plan to get more from that same company?

Beyond belief!!! Were they autographed by the grower?

Hahaha - they shoould have been autographed by Jack!
If I get more from the same company depends on what their response is when I send them a note.

Oh my gosh. It would pay you to grow your own seeds for future plantings.

I was interested in the Provider Bean, so I looked it up and it looks interesting. It also helps that a trusted GP member recommended them.

Provider is a good bean, very heavy bearer, but it needs to be picked younger than other bush beans or I have found they get very stringy. I buy my vegetable seeds at the feed store when I pick up chicken feed. They are in cellophane bags and you can see exactly what you are buying.

Lilo if you would send a mailing address I will send you an ample supply of Provider bean seed. Bought this spring from a reliable source.

It's more likely there was a hang-up in the assembly-line, all that packing is automated now, and it was the end of a shift and so it slid byThe company, Seeds of Change, used to be very customer oriented, but I understand they are now part of an International Corporation and I'm sure that makes a difference, and not a positive one.
