On a side note- Sarasota is one of my favorite places.

We have had decent luck with the red beans (kidney beans) black beans and navy beans (they are white) - we usually buy them from Walmart. Lima beans might work too but I have never tried them since no one in our house eats lima's.

Another suggestion is probably try starting 2 of each since germination is not always 100%.

WIth the paper towel I just wet a plain with paper towel and wrap the seed in it. My kids like to use a glass jar so they can see the roots. The glass jar can also help with heat from the sun. I would not use glass with dirt though due to drainage issues.

Another thing I though of last night was a heating pad. When I am starting seeds early (keep in mind we sometimes get frost as late as the middle of June!) with some of the warm loving ones I will put my seed tray on a heating pad set on low.

I spent many unhappy summers at Lido Beach. I never have liked the beach since I burn after about 5 minutes. lol However my mother insisted that I go to the summer recreation program there (I guess to get me out of her hair since she did not work) . I much prefer living out west to FL - it suits me mucch better. Although I will say the gardening is harder out here. In Fl I loved having 2 gardening seasons. I go back to visit friends and family but I still try to avoid the beach. :) the whole area has changed so much since I was growing up there in the 70's.

Absolutely, it is the cold.
