I can't get over how fast beans germinate. Plants were bursting out of the dirt in four days and grew an inch a day. I decided to plant them outside even though it is getting cold again. I was afraid the plants would take over my living room, where I am growing plants for this year's vegetable garden.
I will probably cover them up at night to protect them from frost. The heat from the foundation of my porch, where I planted them, should also help.
Other fast-germinating plants in this year's collection were Swiss Chard, lettuce, Early Girls and morning glories. The morning glories will be the next plants to be kicked out of the house.
