Jacks Magik Beans

In 1974 we did a project of growing beanstalks in 4th grade.

As old as I am, which I will not divulge, there is still something magical about planting a seed and seeing it come to fruition. Growing beans with friends are the perfect way to share some of that magic. 
1. We soaked the beans in a water glass and took them out when they sank to the bottom.
2. At that time they went straight to a moist paper towel and into a ziplock baggie and into a dark warm spot.
 3. Until they germinate.
As plants’ roots develop and spread, a boost of quickly absorbed, well-balanced nutrients fuel the rapid growth from spindly seedling to a healthy plant.
