Beans in the backyard 2012, weeks 4 & 5
By the beginning of June we witnessed three fully developed trifoliolates and the fourth emerging. My amateur analysis tells me this plant (and most of the field) is at the V3 stage, quickly approaching V4. There appears to be a small trifoliolate growing off the branch of one of the others, but we won't confuse that one with those on the main stem. At this rate, I don't expect reproductive growth for another couple weeks, but we'll keep watching closely nonetheless.
