Nine days ago, I planted these Royal Burgundy Bush Beans.  I’m a sucker for purple.

Royal Burgundy Bush Beans

Beans generally are fast to sprout and grow, making them great for kiddos.  I thought these would especially be great for kids, because they claim to be a glorious purple color, then turn emerald green when you cook them.

In just nine days, they are well established.

Beans!

This isn’t a great picture, but the stems are purple, and the leaves are emerald green.

I just think these are really cool.  I can’t wait to try the beans!
