Well, for the record, vintage seeds are a bad idea. They just plain don't grow. The newish seeds exploded out of the ground with a vengeance, not so for the vintage seeds. As you can see on the left, nothing.
Even with a fluffy 10 lb cow grazing on the sprouted beans (and peeing on them from the smell of it) the new plants are thriving.
I feel betrayed by the vintage side. I had such hope.
