I received the inspiration for this post as soon as I set foot in the greenhouse this morning. Last week we seeded over 5,000 bean plants (dilly beans here we come)! Beans are notoriously fast germinators, and I had been waiting and watching for the first seedlings to pop out. This morning I was greeted by a bean symphony……beans everywhere, at various stages of germinating, growing so fast it seemed as though it was happening before my eyes. After recovering from my initial excitement I began snapping pictures, hoping to be able to transmit the amazingness of bean development through this blog post. Here it goes…..
The amazing bean, emerging from it’s protective shell for the first time….
The stem grows…..
And finally, the first leaves emerge.
Imagine, 5,000 of these little guys! I can’t wait to see how they’ve changed tomorrow!
