Dear Margaret:

Thanks for the tip on the Painted Ladies beans.  I haven't grown these.  My
favorites were an Italian bean my dad grew.  He got the seed from an Italian
neighbor from Sicily.  I think they were quite similar to a Cranberry bean.
They were quite prolific and a wonderful shell bean and a nice treat when
young as a snap bean.
