Rainy Days and Mondays

On a previous boring rainy day we planted some navy beans in a window planter in our stairwell. On this boring rainy day they have sprouted and jumped up almost an inch. Sir O promptly yanked the two biggest sprouts out of the box (sigh), but I think I can save the rest.

This was really easy to do. Beans must be the easiest of all things to grow. I had a bag of dried navy beans from the grocery store, I rolled about 20 of them up in a wet/damp paper towel and put it in an airtight ziplock bag to keep it from drying out. 3-4 days later I checked to see which ones had begun to sprout, and planted those ones.

I'm hoping Sir O learns something from all this. At the very least, it can't be bad for him.
