At last, my dear readers, my humble gardening project is beginning to bear fruit. Dad joke; you’re welcome. 😏
A few weeks ago, I posted some updated photos of my pole bean plants, which had grown much, much taller, but hadn’t bore fruit. Then I noticed little white buds on the plants, and I thought these where the beans. However, it turns out that they were white flowers, not beans.
The flowers stayed for about a week, yellowed and fell off. Another week later, I noticed this tiny, tiny bean growing from where a flower had been. It’s smaller than my thumbnail, but will no doubt get bigger. Plus, the bean plants have many more flowers now, which if current trends continue, mean more beans. 💰
