Jose planted a bean in a cup during his chapel service on Wednesday, March 23. During the first week after he brought it home, I was really skeptical as to whether or not anything was going to grow. We watered it and kept it in sun/artificial light during the day. Still, by the following Wednesday, nothing had happened! I was planning to just quietly throw it out when Jose wasn’t looking. But then – WOW! The next day, there was growth! And not just some little tiny thing barely poking out of the dirt, but an honest to goodness bean plant! Here’s a link to a little slideshow of all the pictures we’ve taken of it so far, from March 31 to April 3. It’s amazing how quickly it’s grown!
