Purple bean picking

Glorious mess
Glorious mess

This is the result of our seed planting a few months ago – to fill in an afternoon, I pulled out all the out of date seeds and showed the toddler how to plant them. Then we waited. And waited. And eventually some plants sprouted. Then I waited some more to find out what they were – mostly pak choy, some basil, some beans.

The Purple King beans are now at the stage to start picking. Every few days we lift up the bean plants which have woven themselves into the flowering pak choy and look to find the beans. The purple makes them stand out and easy to spot. It’s a simple activity that we both get enjoyment out of. I’m hoping to raise a gardener and getting him involved and interested this early will hopefully pay off in the future.
