Observing the growth of a dwarf French bean seed with the kid and sharing the results with you folk because I know yall love sprouting things.

3 seeds have been placed in this jar pressed against the glass with damp kitchen paper. Each day ill top the water up and tip the excess out.

seed germination day 2. 

I think the seed has swollen a little already.

Germination day 3, cracks are showing. 

Only Day three and this seed is showing signs of a tiny crack forming already!

All of the beans have swollen somewhat from soaking up water. I can see it when I hold a dry bean up to it but the difference doesn’t come out on camera well.

I knew the sprout comes from that part of the bean, when they pop out of the ground they are often wearing the seed as a hat having exploded from that point.

@jameschip before reading the caption, I thought I was looking at a pony in a jar 😳 😅
