Alien babies – only one week old

Growing in our living room…we did some indoor seed germination because it still gets quite cold at night here in Brooklyn. These are green beans, and they are like Jack and the beanstalk-style growers. These guys are one week old.

I used Burpee’s grow kit, which included their little dirt pellets (more next time), all kinds of fertilizers and seeds, and these flats with a clear plastic cover that functions like a greenhouse to incubate seeds.  The box said they should germinate for 4-6 weeks, but within a week, the beans have grown so high that the plastic cover doesn’t fit any longer. Yikes! I am going to wait another little while for them to grow a  few more leaves and then plant them in the ground.
