    I wanted to be sure to get the network beans to germinate and grow well so I soaked them and planted them in pots under lights. They grew much faster than the beans I planted outdoors, they are in the planting tray and the beans behind them in the ground were started earlier but are much smaller and not yet reaching out.

    I am sad to say that my 6 bush bean and 4 rice bean varieties I purchased from Azure Dandelion have completely failed to sprout even a single bean. I am done with ordering from them, I read their website and they don't offer replacements. I am planting my former saved bush beans to replace them- Yer Fasulyasi, Blue Ribbon, Cline's Potato Patch, Tendergreen, Marconi Nano, and Stolfus. My pole beans have come up very well and look great, and I am so impressed with the rapid growth of the network beans that I started in pots under lights that next year I may be starting quite a lot of beans that way, especially some of the long growth season beans that were hard to get dry seed from last year. One more advantage of growing in pots was that I saw a couple of beans with roots coming up out of the soil instead of the cotyledons, so I was able to knock them out and turn them over, out in the garden I wouldn't even notice.
