I got RG's newsletter this morning and saw that Steve decided to open up lots more spots. After taking care of the waiting list, etc., there were just 75 available, so I jumped on it.

 

Good for you - I got the same newsletter and debated too long!  Ah well, it's OK.  I have a pretty good stash of RG beans on hand at the moment.

Agreed. I also have a few pounds in the pantry, but I subscribed, in part, to "force" myself to eat more beans. It's easy to forget about them -- out of sight, out of mind, and all that, and I don't want to keep the jars out on the counter. Knowing that more beans will showing up on my doorstep every three months should, I hope, keep them more in mind.

When I got the newsletter I didn't debate, I went to the Rancho Gordo site.  But that's what I get for sleeping late.

 

Speaking of debate, I was in a discussion with a colleague at work about bean pots.  She advocated for her bean pot and I advocated for mine.  After some while we realized both of us had bean pots from Rancho Gordo and she concluded:  "I think we have the same bean pot."

it's been wild. We opened up 1,000 spaces but we had a 2,100 waitlist. Then the article came out. We have spaces open up every quarter so the waitlist is your best bet. 
The Bean Club is fun but we have plenty of other beans. Plenty!
