This morning we made some pretty exciting discoveries: our caterpillars are very very big and starting to move toward the top of the container! We think they might be making their chrysalids in the next couple of days! And then we saw that our beans are growing into bean stalks! We were so excited and predict that they will reach the top of the ziplock bags very soon. We also realized that some of us added too much water to our beans and they are not growing at all.
