Phaseolus Vulgaris genus includes snap beans, string beans, wax beans, shelly beans, kidney beans, and all kinds of dry beans. Since this is one of the more commonly grown garden vegetables I wanted it included in the early posts of this forum. Collecting the seed to be saved for next years garden is as simple as leaving several bean pods on each of several plants in a row or two and letting them completely mature and dry on the vine. Cross pollination within the Leguminosae family is uncommon in my area. Since the flowers are "perfect" (having both male and female reproductive structures in the same flower) and self-pollinating it is usually quite easy to start your home grown seed collection with beans. It is important to watch for traits that are not what is desired (in plant growth, pod growth, plant and pod size and color, and seed size and color), and discard from the saved seed any that are off type.
