The journey of my long bean



Last month, i had planted one long bean plant, yes, only one. It grew so well and the leaves were so big. 


It was just before raya, and it start flowering. A lot of black ants surrounded the flower. I did not have a chance to see the long bean yet as the flower & baby bean keep dropping!! 

At the same time, the holiday for raya started & I went back to my hometown for about a week of time. 

I am quite worry as nobody will be there to help me to water my long bean. It was a crucial time as the plant almost bear me long bean & the plant need water to grow!!



Thing happened as I expected when I come back from holiday. Whole long bean plant was dried up. 

The plant did bear me 11 long beans, yes 11 long beans. But all were in abnormal shape and retarded

What a experience…no choice and I keep watering the plant hoping the bean will be revived back. 

But all effort were useless!!!! Arrhhhhhhh!!! 

Still, i had the luck to taste the long bean at last but all were in mini size as the whole plant was dried up eventually.

  3. Your soil look good for planting bean there. I am sure the new plant will also grow well too.

    1. yaya. u r right! the soil is really still good cos i put lot of compost there. But bcos it is inside a container, so the water is a crucial component for a plant to grow
