It must be the mung beans that Jack's mother threw out!
Ever since I was little and learnt the story of Jack and the bean stalk, I have always wanted to know the name of the bean that Jack's angry mother threw out the kitchen window.
Your guess is right! It must be the magical mung beans.According to the story, it grew overnight into a bean stalk that reached the sky.My bean sprouts have confirmed that this is a true tale.
I have placed a coffee mug next to the flower pot as a scale to compare the size of the pot. This photo was taken on the fifth day since I first sprout the beans.Look at the volume and the rate it has grown!
Whatever you do with the mung beans, please do not throw them out of the window. Unless you want to climb the bean stalk in the garden to the sky.
