KATE AND THE BEANSTALK


I knew you wouldn't believe me when I said that the beans I sowed 7 days ago around the terracotta-water-pot were already 20cm high and the leaves were as big as the palm of my hand so I took a photo. It is hard to see the height, I will have to take another photo later. They have received not one drop of extra water since I poked them into the ground, only that from the porous pot. The snails, or something, are getting to some of the leaves but they are growing so fast I think they will be well out of reach soon.

What an appropriate title for your post! LOL.. Great to see them at alarming speeds.

Hi Kate...Glenys here!
I can't believe the photo!
You showed us the newly planted area just over a week ago at gardening group and there were just the tops of tiny seed heads!
I think you might just have another convert on your hands!
Also I vaguely remember seeing a landscaping place on Port Road selling cheap terracotta pots, I think some were seconds.
I will have to try and check it out next week and get back to you.
