    I think Bf will find her “case knife” beans on a food exchange website…I have found several that have them…The “closed knife look” of the bean, hince the name..
    We have grown Turkey Craws…but never case knife…I just love these old bean names..I saw on one site 20 seeds for 3.00..but they were sold out…sounds like a fun pole bean to grow…
    Now I have to add that to the list for next years tryouts…
    Thanks Tipper,

    Congradulations to Ed Myers on
    winning the Christmas CD. Its a
    good one! I have it along with
    “Lamplighting in the Valley” and
    most of the time they stay in my
    player, so I can get a dose any
    time I need it.
    I’m waiting patiently (and its so
    hard in this heat) for the video
    of those beautiful girls singing
    in the old Cataloochee Church.

    How very cruel…I am so doggone hot. I came in and clicked on the Blind Pig…what do I see but a cool dip in the water but no way to get my toes in it…Oh, shoot!
    Think I’ll go to the Wally World and buy a little blue kiddie pool…Do you think the water would boil in it before I could get it filled…We have an extreme heat warning for the Knoxville area today…
    How hot is it?
    It is so hot the ‘maters cook in their skins and all I have to do is walk along the vines and drop’em in the jars….ha
    Congratulations to Ed Myers…
    That snow looks so inviting as well…but I am not going to wish for snow just yet….ONLY A POOL…
    Thanks Tipper

    does anyone remember the old time beans called “case knife”?now i dont know if that was the real name or the name of someone who shared the seed , you know they did call them after the one who gave them , do you remember or was you too young? anyway they were real good and i,m looking for someone who would be willing to save a few for me
    as always you are doing a great job and we appreciate you
    have a good day

    This site means so much to me and I’ve forwarded to others and hope that they do read it when you send it. It brings back so memories of my family which are long gone, especially my dad. The music is wonderful.
    The June bugs are so thick this year. I’m still picking blackberries as big as quarters and the yes, the June bugs are still out that as big as ever and plentiful. I tried to pick enough of the eaten or drying ones for my chickens to eat today
