Green Beans Growing

Growing a bean plant indoors just for giggles. I didn't expect much from it but there are four beans already. This picture was a few days ago but now you can easily see the little seeds growing in the pods.
In with it are the apple tree and a tomato plant.  Going to add some more dirt soon to help support the tomato plant. Everything is growing toward the window trying to get as much light out of a north facing window as possible. With spring just around the corner I really should have more started but the garden has taken a backseat to the rest of life for the moment. We'll see what ends up getting planted after things slow down again.
On a sadder note, two of my remaining five cacao trees have died.  I was out of the office for an extended period of time and no one else waters anything. In the room they were growing it gets really hot and dry and they just ran out of moisture and shriveled up.  The one at home is doing great still and the other two are in a more appropriate location in the office and doing nicely.  they even had a growth spurt recently of a few inches in height.
