green finger tips - beans developing

The bean seed was planted on 14 November 2011 and germinated 6 days later.

The first true leaves of the beans appear, shiny and bright.

The first flowers of the beans appear on 20 December. The very first tiny baby beans are showing themselves 5 days later.

Beans are easy to grow and maintain. They need little attention, given the right amount of water, they produce plentifully.

This is the first handful of green beans harvested from the bushes. They are sweet, succulent and delicious when picked just at the right time. Pick the beans as they reach full length. If you leave them for longer, they will become less tender as the seed starts developing.
