bean sprouts

These are sprouts of Chinese pole beans. A fantastic variety given to me by a friend of my husband. Such brave little sprouts poking up through the soil.

  • Love the photo!! Be brave little sprouts. The world is full of slugs, snails and pillbugs. But, if you work hard and struggle toward the sun, oh what bounty you will provide.

    Bean sprouts are my favorite sprouts. They always look so heroic, rearing their heads through the soil like that. Huzzah!

    I know we are celebrating beans sprouting forth! But have been investigating whitefly detterents this evening (had to dig up a dearly raised brussels sprout plant completely bound by them yesterday). Seems that yellow fly strips that you may use around the house work equally well in the old garden or veggie patch! Just thought I would share as it didn't occur to me!

  • Great picture, I took a bunch of pics of the beans in my garden and made a little video of the sprouts stretching out the other day, it is amazing how quickly they plow through the earth and rise up.

  • I was excited to plant some Chinese 'yard long' beans in my patch about 3 weeks ago, sadly only one has come up. I think they must have rotted. Will try some more in pots in the greenhouse now.

  • I specialize in growing "Sitao" or "yard long beans" and Ampalya (bitter melon).

    Asians eat the bean mainly for the pod and not the seed, like western beans. Be sure to pick the yard longs before the seeds start to develop. The pods start to become tough after that.
