Not since Jack has a bean been so eagerly awaited.  Yes, of course, there were meant to be more, but birds and other mysteries of the soil and the secret lives of seeds took their toil.

These are first photos of Bean. I am pleased to be able to report that he has now fully emerged and spread his leaves and grown the first hair on his stalk.  Perhaps my collecting recipes for broad beans has been premature, but I have faith and along the way have collected a bit of knoweldge, too.  I have been the ancient mariner of bean-itude buttonholing my garden friends. Next year I'll be better acqainted with the wonderful world of bean seeds.
