Classroom experiment

 

 

     Several weeks ago, my sons both brought home their classroom projects: corn and bean plants they sprouted in plastic cups. The boys envisioned eating fresh corn and beans in the cold of Iowa’s winter. So, more to make them happy than thinking they would continue growing, I agreed to transplant them into a larger container.

 

Just two weeks ago, pretty pinkish blossoms appeared on the bean plants and in the last several days the beans started emerging. Even though it won’t make a hearty meal, the plants have been fun to watch and they’ll provide a little taste of summer in January.
