Dwarf Runner

 So my little dwarf runner bean has sprouted.  It almost looks like a chrysalis.

Like a butterfly, you can start to see the leaves (wings) develop.

 Finally, it's fully open.

 Rather pretty, isn't it?
It will soon outgrow its peat pot so I will make a newspaper liner for the clam-shell I used as a mini-greenhouse and let the bean roots grow into that space which I will fill with potting soil.  When it's warm outside, I can gently lift out the newspaper and put the whole thing into a large pot. And if all goes as planned, I will have fresh beans in June.
