Bean poles

April 23, 2011

Last year I came up with a hugely complicated & over engineered bean trellis. It worked OK but I’ve since moved the beds and added another long bed in their place.

So this year I’ll just make a basic vertical frame.

The west side (left) of the bed is a long row of potatoes; the soil piled up to the right will fill in the potato trench shortly and the “Christmas” limas will run down that side. I’ll either lean thinner bamboo against the top “cross bar” or tie off jute string the same way.

For perspective, this is the asparagus bed just to the left:

Funny how plain this looks vs the monstrosity last year…
