    I don't ever remember anyone around here talking about doing it, and I never have. I have read about the process several times over the years, though.

    With these modern egg layers of today there's not many days in a year I don't gather eggs.

    I was gathering eggs daily myself but my 11 hens have all but quit in the last couple weeks. If we get an abundance this spring and summer we may give it a try

    Wife was looking at a process that calls for pickling lime water. And storing them in a bucket. Just reach in and grab the ones off the bottom. Store them in a cool dark place. Is this the same thing? Just diff name? I have heard of not washing the eggs and oiling them and storing them also.

    A little something more about saving bean and there heirloom seeds--this is a short piece about John Coykendal who sort of became a seed preserver spokesman many years ago. There are some PBS programs and other pieces on him that are more in depth than this short piece . Sometimes PBS is not worth a dime, this short piece is different .



    Barney and some others on here are serious and dedicated seed savers. As was my Dad.. I hope the tradition can continue somehow among some younger folk.

    Here is a longer piece of about an hour.

    Enjoyed that first video and intend upon watching the longer one. I like elders like that man, considering them to be treasures of wisdom. I don't know a darn thing about veggie seeds but do have my father's bean seeds. I would love for some of you within the know to actually begin a thread dedicated strictly to veggie and fruit seeds, being that my focus has always been flowers and primarily bulbs, even though I do mess with specific flower seeds here and there.

    That is spot-on. We're definitely in the 11th hour. So many old heirloom varieties have already been lost, and most of the ones out there are being crossed up beyond recognition by the very curators who are trying to preserve them.

    Over the years, there's been no telling how many pure seed samples I've given to others, only to have them get em crossed within a couple of years. Pole beans and large fruited maters are especially notorious for crossing if strict protocol is not followed.

    I like preparing and especially eating white beans and ham, green beans/pole beans with fatback, but that is really about it other than kidney beans in my chili. Every now and then I crave pork and beans, but I have just never been really hyped up over beans in general. Black-eyed peas with mashed potatoes are another story altogether, though. I could eat those every day. Regardless, that one bean soup Barney recently prepared looked more than just delicious.
