Week 6 blogging is a bit late. Sorry about that, I was a tiny bit busy. 🙂 I really am enjoying the pretty purple flowers on this bean plant! The bottom leaves are loosing their color too soon in my opinion, so I added some fertilizer. I realize I have no bees to pollinate, but I’m still hopeful this plant may produce one bean!
The vines have really taken off and are almost at the very top of the string I attached. A nice amount of little purple flowers can be found over most of the plant. I love this shade of purple, so I’m so happy the flowers are not white, but colored! 🙂
You can see here that the vines have been steadily growing. They just needed a little help when they first started. I am eager to see how far these little bean plants will grow before saying good night.
If you have ever tried growing beans indoors just for the fun of it let me know how it turned out! I’m not talking about growing starts for gardens indoors, but just seeing how far your plant flourished inside. So far my window by my little kitchen area has a lovely window curtain of bean leaves, vines and purple flowers. 🙂
