Some of us remember my mystery bean story and the last installment was posted on April 28, 2013.

Now, I won't bore you with another dragged-out lengthy story, BUT...
Something wonderful has happened after something sad had happened. You see, it snowed here the very day after we left and bean #1 died. A neighbor had promised to water it once in a while, but she looked at it after the snow, and it was dead. Dead! d... e... a... d.
On July 6, when we returned from being away for two months, a new bean sprout popped up in the SAME POT that the first one grew from during the month of April.
I had planted three. When only one sprouted, I assumed the other two were not going to germinate. The first bean was grown in the house.
The 2nd one came out of hiding in the very same pot exactly 3 months later and is flourishing. Yippee!
I had taken the pot back out of the ground and set it in the carport. When I went to empty it I saw the sprout. It is now three weeks old and, hopefully, will live to produce - outdoors. Lessons learned: Nature knows best. Don't plant bean seeds in the house in April.
Wasn't that a nice surprise??? It's like when my flowers come back from seed from the year before. I am always so surprised and so happy about it! And I'm happy for your bean plant and you!! Can't wait to see it grow!ReplyDelete
My dad always had a garden. I remember him growing beans, string beans, tomatoes, peppers, etc. I even remember there being water melons a couple of times. They were smallish but boy were they good!ReplyDelete
