Today we've just planted our runner beans. The first thing we did was we each got given a cup. We rolled up a paper towel and placed it inside the cup. After we'd done that, we scrunched up 2 or 3 paper towels and put them inside the cup. Next we placed one bean in the cup, halfway down. Then we wet the paper towels so that they were damp but not fully wet. We wrote our names on the cup and placed the cups on the windowsill.
I think that the runner bean will start to crack and turn into a sprout. I also think that the roots might grow soon. That will be really exciting!
