{Growing Pinto Beans In a Jar}

Remember the pinto beans my son sprouted in a jar?  Well, we planted a few of the sprouts in our garden, and a couple of them have been growing well and are giving us beans!  Unfortunately, they have caterpillars eating the leaves right now, so that means we’ll have to learn a lot more about organic gardening in the future.  But I’m tickled pink that we got something to grow!  My six-year-old is very happy too!

UPDATE: I just found these instructions on how to harvest pinto beans!

  1. We grew beans in a jar too, unfortunately I couldn’t put them in the garden (it was too cold still). How neat this is! Can you use the beans off this?

    1. Hi ~ last year we also couldn’t put the beans in the ground because it wasn’t the right time of year, so we did it again this spring, and it worked! The beans look like green beans – I have no idea how to turn them into the pinto beans you buy in the store! I haven’t opened the pods yet. I will have to look up how to cook them! They certainly look edible!
