I threw about 5 good beans in the ground 6 days ago and watered it with a little miracle grow. Confused? don't be. I didnt germinate or anything just threw them in the hole and watered with fertilizer... It rained three days in a row for a total of 4 waterings so far. My theory is you can fertilize young seedlings, even seeds if you flush afterwards. I wanted to see if they would sprout faster and they did and they are 2 times greener than any seedling i have ever sprouted (it's really good midgrade bagseed). I'll post in a week or two to tell you how they are doing. P E A C E .
