Let's grow some Beans!
We as a family love gardening, its tranquil and therapeutic as well as rewarding when it's all done. We usually do our gardening on a Sunday morning and make it a family affair.
My eldest has a kind of respect for nature that most don't come close to. She speaks to the snails and sings with the birds, she helps Ants out of puddles and admires flowers and plants as if they were diamonds. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we all saw nature through her eyes? What a wonderful world it would be.
We decided to do some research into the planting process of Beans. and got all our tools together to complete our bean planting project
What you'll need:
1 Egg tray
1/2 Cup Raw beans
Add 1/2 Cup raw beans to your jar
Fill the jar with 1/8 cup water
Leave it for 2 days to start sprouting and opening.
2 Days Later:
Fill each hole in the egg carton with 1 Teaspoon of soil
Soak the cotton wool in some water to absorb the water
Add 2 Beans per hole in the Egg Carton that you have filled with soil
Cover each hole with wet cotton wool
Allow the growth process to begin.
Water every second day with a small amount of water
Once your tree/trees' are big, transplant them into the ground or a big pot.
Watch your Bean Tree grow!
