Brooklyn Farm's First Flower Post

Green beans
Sugar snap peas
It is possible for each flower on these plants to produce a fruit (scientifically speaking each of these is a fruit). Of course to produce a fruit, each flower needs to be pollinated by a bee… fingers crossed. We have seen bees flying around which is a good sign. If it all works out, fruit will grow out of the flower opening. The green beans and sugar snap peas are particularly satisfying because they have grown from seed.

How clever, first flowers. I am really enjoying this blog, I wish more people knew about it. The photos are great and the dialog is clever and fun.
