blog #291 >> Springy Sprouts

After all of our rain, these past few sunny days have really made things start popping up in the garden. I had to replant a row of lettuce that drowned, and dug a little ditch to catch the rain water, but besides all that, I think it's going to do really well. One thing for sure is, it's going to be a great year for strawberries.

Ooo! That's exactly how I want to string my beans! Do you just plant them in the middle of the teepee? How many did you plant in each one?

Theresa said...

Yeah, I made teepees for both the peas and the beans. If you make a teepee for beans make sure you buy pole beans and not bush beans. That's what I did last year, and this year I was certain I got pole beans and then I remembered switching out the packages last minute because these beans were striped. So now I've got a row of beans and beans on a pole. We're going to have a lot of beans.

All that and I realized I forgot to actually answer your question.

I planted them one by each pole, one in between each pole, and one in the middle. About three or four beans per hole.
