Beans, Beans, Musical Beans...
Back in April, we planted the seeds...
And cared for them.
The kids say: "That was a long time ago."
And it was. The boy's still got his curls in that pic.
And sprayed them with water.
And soon things started to happen.
At dinner, we would place them in prime sunny positions at the table with us, and we were sure they were growing in front of our eyes.
Things got a little competitive.
We planted them in the ground, still competing, still observing.
The beans grew big, my patience thinned, so we picked them off the plant and into our mouths.
And they were good.
But we'll leave the others a bit longer.
We think they could have/should have gotten EVEN bigger.
Oh, and we made stop motion videos of the whole process too!
In other garden news:
The succulents are flowering pretty all over the place.
they are making a run for it.
They grow, they multiply, they spread, they stretch, they flower and then they make the drop down.
And then I find them fallen, trying to grow in another location.
I can't deny that my feelings are hurt.
What is wrong with the home that I made for them?
Don't I give them everything that they need/want?
Why are they leaving me? With empty patches that I urge to fill.
Is this empty nest symptom?
Is this what it's going to be like when my kids fly the nest?!
I make them a home and nurture them, encouraging them to grow and develop and then if all goes well, they coordinate a successful manoever to move out and move on and develop elsewhere, out from under my vigilant, overbearing eyes?!
The daily fallen.
Will we have any apples grow to their full potential this year I wonder?
Three week old succulent cuttings already multiplying.
Trapped this dangling, escaping alpine or succulent by wrapping it over a push pin on the pallet, to keep it a bit longer before it dangles to the ground.
And we are trying to grow a pineapple plant.
Good luck with that right?
Go ahead. Place your bets.
