Maggie, I can't see if you have a blog - please - let me know if I am wrong.
|Knee high Mung bean plants|
The Mung bean plant is seriously not a tall plant - at maximum these are knee high.
|All the Mung bean pods are situated on the very|
tip of each "branch"
And the pods form right at the tip of the branch - two or three pods per tip. Really weird for a bean - but I'm looking forward to harvesting them :)
And, as I couldn't resist opening one, here is what the inside looks like.

It would appear that they even fooled the mice - for none of the pods have been touched...
My broad beans and peas are coming along nicely, and I've kept on top of the non-sprouting ones and replaced them with new seeds, so I should have a reasonable harvest this year. Can't wait :)
