Work In Progress: Green Beans Getting huge!
This here is my green bean plant! It has all but taken over the huge 8 FT cage I placed it in! I do like this plant because It climbs seemingly anything you put in its path!. It just reaches out its tentecles and grasps on firmly to whatever it can reach!
This is what the tentecle, as I call it, looks like. See the wire, well the light green stringy things is what I'm refering to. It starts out as long and only silightly curved much like the shape of a cresent. Then it slowly curves even fruther till it finds something to grab. Once the plant senses it has something it reduces the amount of moisture in the tentecle and it starts to curl and wrap itself around the object.
This is another picture, a little less fuzzy, of the same thing.
Speaking of Size. GROW MY PRETTY GROW TO THE SKY!
This is the green bean itself. There are already about 12 on the plant. I can't wait to try one. I bet it will be so crunchy good!
OK! thanks everbody for the reads!
