Q.Green Beans

I have taken some beans out of the pods of green beans. There are some that are small and some that are quite a bit bigger. Which ones do I dry out to use for next year?

The size of the bean seeds doesn't really make any difference as long as the ones that you choose are healthy looking. Small ones produce just as well as the larger seeds. Also, to ensure you have enough and that at least one bean seed produces, remember the rule of three when planting (three seeds per hole). With this in mind, you may be able to use all of your bean seeds, planting both small and larger ones together.
