what's your favorite bean?

we plan to focus on growing beans next year, as our hugelkulture will need the nitrogen for a year or 2. so we are looking for interesting and tasty beans that we can seed save.
will probably do a teenie bit of the three sisters thing and tuck in a couple melons and squash, but to run and shade out the weeds. suggestions for that welcome also.

1. I love Italian Romano Beans....

cooked up with your scrungy tomatoes and a little basil. My grandmother used to make them I found a little short cut this year I steamed them a little, while the sauce cooked. I put mine on a teepee poles.

Some nice crusty bread oh my.

2. we grow an acre of Black Beans

every other year at our organic farm...3000 pounds of fresh black beans are a wonderful sight. No soaking, even after a year. They cook quickly and taste great. We have also done kidney and Maine yellow eye.

6. I am a big fan of cannellini.

White kidney beans. They make a great bean dip with olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice. I also toss them in pasta sauce.
