New Growth, Replanting and a New Carpet?

Here is a photo of the emerging bush bean plant

A little education. Notice the two small leaves ( at the bottom of the plant ).

They are called the cotyledon  ( also called the seed leaves) It is the embryonic leaf within the seed. Above are the first set of “True Leaves” . Drop that line when you are showing friends your garden. They will be impressed!

Some of you have mentioned that some of your beet, spinach and carrot leaves have not germinated. The extraordinary amount of rain could have either rotted the seeds or washed them away.  When in doubt, replant. You are creating a succession planting of the item.

You can actually harvest some of these as  micro greens   if you would like or wait a little longer for a more bountiful portion. use a scissors and cut a small patch leaving an inch at the base for regrowth.

    I believe these are dicotyledons, as opposed to monocots.

  2. Adam says:

    Both Monocots and Dicots are classifications of the Cotyledon. Yes, the Bush bean is a Dicot, ( because of the two leaves versus one).

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Adam.
    I find your suggestions very helpful.
    I have found placing the Kale mixture
    very tasty. Adding sun flower seeds to
    your recipe adds to the flavor and
    helps make it slightly more crunchy.
    Keep up the good work!!
