"Tis the season to be beaning

Debbie Harper lives in Fort Morgan, Alabama, and she's a beaner. She came to a Sea-Bean Symposium several years ago and hopes to get back for this year's symposium. During some emails with our chief beaner, Ed Perry, she sent a link to a video she made of a sea-bean walk she took about a month ago. Ed sent it to Margie, Margie sent it to me, and I got Debbie's permission to share it with you. Cactus Jack, I know you'll love this! Short Lessons in Finding Sea-Beans on the Beach

Thanks for posting the link to that I feel like I have gone hunting for sea beans. What a great way to spend a day.

I never realized people were so gaga over sea beans.
I just took them for granted as another cool beach oddity growing up in St. Augustine.
I did plant one once and an enormous vine grew out of it and all over my sunny bedroom.

I knew you'd like that video, Cactus Jack.

FC - different strokes for different folks, but your comment will be the focus of another post as soon as I get my research done. Meanwhile, plan to bring the FC family over for the symposium and see first-hand what it's all about.

I think if I lived in Florida I would have a world class collection of beans...they are so cool
