ordered POLE beans this year, OP so I can save seed and I will be trying a new trellis system..used lattice in the past and it is a bugger to remove the old'll see IF i can find some twin around otherwise wonder if crochet yarn would work, got a lot of that and it sure would be colofrul eh? Most of my yarns are natural fibers.


Bloom where you are planted.

My off centered, semi tepee style is working good so far with room for corn to
grow on one side of the bed. Beans are starting to run!

Cool layout. I may try the trelis technique next year.
I've been using old bicycle rims atop tall posts (or poles)
I tie a string (natural twine) in each quadrant of the rim and let it dangle. 1 or 2 beans at the string.
It's amazing how the bees find the flowers.. I find beans in every hidden spot.
Best taste and growing is Blue Lake pole beans ... mmm .. pick 'em young.
In the fall I cut the plants at ground level and leave the roots in the ground to help with nitrogen (legumes),
plant and string goes to compost.
