Last year I took a short sidetrack into germinating sea beans and wrote about it here.
I originally had the plant growing up bamboo canes I’d attached to my back porch; however, the vines kept hitting the hot metal roof and dying back. Then in the fall, the plant froze to the ground and I thought I’d lost it.
A month or so ago, it started growing again from the base and I’ve moved the pot to the garden. I thought about transplanting it directly into the soil but I’m afraid the move might kill it, so I left the plant in its pot.
Maybe we’ll get our own home-grown sea beans this year. Now if I can just get the ocean to come a little closer…
