LOL life of a busy child!! **big smile** i think i will add some black beans to that!! LOL so do ya do stuff like that?? **grin**

Some people would see a bag a beans and others would see a bag of SEEDS. lol My kids taped zip lock bags with beans and a moist paper towel in them to a window at school for an experiment. It's a good way to see how the roots grow.

Are you planting beans NOW? I haven't done a lot of veggie gardening but I would think that it's too late in the year for those. Good practice for next summer though if it is.

I've been planting more and more edibles and just scatter them around the yard since I don't have a traditional vegetable garden. I've saved seeds from store bought melons several times to grow. Sometimes our grocery store will have unusual melons like casaba, canary or Christmas melons and it's a good way to give them a try without spending much.

Do you have a special recipe for 15 bean soup or is it the ones that come with a seasoning packet in the bag?

LOL this last time we added ground virginia turkey. LOL it was really good!! :') **big smile** but then, i'm nuts!! **grin**

Can you just start with a home made french onion soup and play with it????I would think so!A couple of crockpots of home made soup was always a must on the weekends-we were always doing wood and were in and outta the house grabbing a cup of warm soup when we needed a break...
