Sprouting in the pod
Quite a few of my beans of all varieties have broken their seed coats and enlarged their cotyledons while still inside the pod. These were shelled out and dried with the others to test if they will germinate next year.
What causes beans to sprout inside the pod like this?
I thought this might have been due to my foliar fertilizer use until nearby organic gardening friends told me that their beans this year also did this. They attributed it to the excessive rains.
