We did squash - how about landrace beans?

I took a few pictures of this year's harvest of beans.  My initial seed-beans came from Joseph, from some beans in my seed survival kit, and some from a bag of 7 bean soup I bought at Walmart.  Some of these are the same types of beans I planted.  Some, like the black beans with the white on them and a couple others, don't look like the beans that I started with.

The black/white spotted bean may be descended from a hybrid line that I have been working on. I'm super excited to see those. I was hoping that phenotype would show up.

I got some holstein beans from my Lofthouse crop this year too.  FYI these were bean seeds purchased for 2017 planting and not mixed with other bean seeds.

I don't have a lot of them, I'm happy to send you some if you like.  

Mike, excellent bunch of beans.  Beans and squash are my favorite things to grow.  I love the diversity.
 
You know it is dark times when the trees riot. I think this tiny ad is their leader:
