The pole bean teepee did not “fill out” the way I had hoped it would. In hindsight, I would say that I was too rushed to put it up and I didn’t prepare the seed bed well enough. I did nothing more than strip off a 2 inch wide swath of sod, place seeds in the trench and then cover them with bagged compost. The grass and weeds were the victors of this fight for life. Some beans grew, but they definitely did not thrive.
I think I’ll try it again next year. Help me remember. 🙂
