It is no wonder that Jack traded his cow for some beans! In a little over a weeks time we have had a great deal of growth from our pinto beans. We are now at the stage where the beans are going in the dirt, so I thought I would share some final out of the dirt pictures.
the cotyledon is almost free of the protective seed coat
i just love this little bean…the secondary roots seem to cradle the bean, how motherly!
The first two true leaves emerge…doesn’t this look like a coy kitten?

Our most advanced bean…seed coat is off, the two true leaves are out, and the little stem in-between will continue to grow past the first leaves!
The corn grew slower but seemed to take the silliest pictures.
a good glimpse of the primary root…looks like a back bend to me
the adventitious roots make this corn seed look like it’s saluting…
The kangaroo pose…the coleoptile looks green from the curled up leaves that reside inside
the tip of the coleoptile reveals the leaves that will emerge soon

I hope you have a chance to sprout some seeds too. Although the pictures above are for our homeschooling science projects, I am now inspired to start my garden plants from seed.
If you have any seed starting tips, please leave them here for me. Hope you have a happy Friday!
