Using Cinder Blocks to Grow Beans: Growing and Harvesting

Started with 10 seeds and it multiplied to many! Very simple way to grow beans and as always, harvesting what I grow is fun! As a container, I used cinder blocks, added a mixture of top soil and organic compost, water them, then watch them grow! From purple flowers to green small pods that eventually transformed into beautiful yellow bean pods! The harvesting video was made 6 days ago and today I made my second harvest! I absolutely love it!

    That is so awesome!! I’m def gonna try that. I had some purple, green, and yellow bean plants up and running last month but a hail storm knocked them down on their faces right when they were starting to produce beans. They managed to survive and regrew their leaves, but then ANOTHER hail storm came back and finished the job. Lol! My poor beans.

    Great little intro you put together there and lovely yellow wax bean plants as well, Thanks!

    It’s always nice to see unusual containers being used! Wow you got soo many bean pods from just 10 seeds :)

    Hey, Jane! Aren’t the cinder blocks open on the bottom side, so that the roots are actually growing down into the soil?

  • MyInspiredCreation says:

    Probably so, Josh. I’ll have to check it out and I’ll take a pic, once it stops raining. ^^

  • MyInspiredCreation says:

    Thanks, Steve! I really enjoyed them. :)

    That’s a good harvest!

  • kmoney14141 says:

    my mom use to do that with flowers and she used plastic bags so she did not have to water them as often

  • glvedio says:

    hai pretty..i saw all your videos..so i suggest u need wearing garden gloves while u gardening..:)

  • rankindragon says:

    Those are growing really big in there. That’s a great idea, Jane. I bet those beans were delicious!

  • Andalbanon says:

    Thanks! If I leave my containers sitting in the same spot for long enough, the roots escape into the ground….and then the plants grow super big!!! :-D

  • MyInspiredCreation says:

    They were really good! :) I’ll be planting more from the beans that I harvested from these. :)

  • MyInspiredCreation says:

    Thanks! I enjoyed the fact that I didn’t have to wait long to harvest. ^^

  • MyInspiredCreation says:

    Thank you. Not only they make good retaining wall, they can also make use of the space and grow something in them. ^^

  • MyInspiredCreation says:

    Thanks, Kalem! =)

  • MyInspiredCreation says:

    Oh my! That’s unfortunate that it got damaged by hail storm. I’ve seen some purple beans around and I want to plant them, too. I love all the different colors of vegetables. Brings “pizzazz” to the garden. Lol.

  • MyInspiredCreation says:

    Thank you! :)

  • MyInspiredCreation says:

    It’s so cool, Peter! Eventually I’ll plant more, but for now, I’m gardening what I can managed. 😉

  • MyInspiredCreation says:

    Thanks! :)

  • MyInspiredCreation says:

    Flowers are very pretty, adds beauty to cinder blocks. ^^

  • MyInspiredCreation says:

    Yeah. I need to remind myself to put on gloves. Lol.

  • MyInspiredCreation says:

    They sure were! I harvested some more after this video and looking forward to having another harvest in a few days. Once they started forming into little bean pods, they get big and mature pretty fast after that. :)

  • GummyTumor says:

    I know! I love finding exotic colored veggies and fruits. I think you would love the purple beans, the stems are a dark purple color and even the leaves have a tinge of royal purple on them. Really pretty.

    yess that u must to do while gardening…:-)
