I planted a few bean seeds out of a bag of "soup mix" in the house this winter. They grew and produced seed which are now growing in the greenhouse. Pintos, some kind of white bean, and another bean that's growing. The lima grew into a monster in the house, but alas my soil was wrong and went septic for some reason. The seeds it produced were probably not mature, as they haven't germinated yet. Oh well, for the most part the soup mix seeds are a success. It was an organic soup mix, which may have helped, idk?

We have some volunteer spinach and a yellow bean in the greenhouse. I am planning on taking a whole bunch of seed off this year, hopefully. The long season in the greenhouse should help with that. Volunteer parsnip from root in the greenhouse should produce seed this year.

dirt, air, water, sun, ... seeds .
The five genuine resources. governments/royals/evil, anti nature bastards around the world have taken the right to most of the genuine resources of life away from the people. Anti nature, anti God evil bastards.
really! out of the bean soup mix bag... lol. that's cool! :yes:

Yes, really. And they made seed in the house and those seeds are growing in the greenhouse. If the damn cutworms don't decimate the beans I will have some good seed to complement my others. The white beans show huge promise as a hardy variety.

as soon as the house beans were dry-ish in the pod I put them in the fridge.

Your solder plant looks like a cantalope to me! ----leaves are too round for cucumbers.
Yup, doesn't look like a cucumber...the suspense is killing me. Haha!

sometimes, what i plant just gets planted but not eaten. my spinach was like that past season. planned for salads at least. but nada. then it got old, warmed up n bolted. i encouraged one. it went to seeds. took the stalk and put into baggie. then worked it to get seeds out. prob will just plant the entire contents next fall. u can see all the round seeds inside.
