Beans have sprouted!

Post  JK on 3/13/2012, 5:51 pm

Last week, 3-8-12, I planted about 45 bush beans. We had a shower today and when I got home and checked my boxes I see several of the beans exposed. All of the exposed beans are at some stage of sprouting.

This shows how incredibly new I am and how much simple stuff I have to learn but is this the way bush beans act when they sprout? Or has the shower simply settled my mix a little more and exposed them?

If this is how it is supposed to be then great! If not, do I need to cover them back up or will they be ok and keep sprouting?

Never imagined I would be worried over some beans....affraid

The mix has settled and the beans have swelled up. Same thing happened to my peas. I just pushed them down a bit and covered them up lightly.
