      Beans are out of control

      I have never planted beans before and had no idea how big they would get. They are overshadowing the onions to the right and the peppers on the left. I am not sure what to do with them as they are drooping all over the place.

      Can you run a rope or string on each side of them to hold them up a bit so they don't drape everything?


      Thanks Everyone!!

      Sure. But I think I'd take some more of that chicken wire and run it from side to side...giving more support than string would. Things look happy!

      Wish mine were that big. But I did plant them at the back where it's most shady.

      Yes you can just remember to add a few strings of rope above them so they can grow. We used twine last year but with the sun down here the twine started to breaking so this year we used something like goat fencing which is sturdier than chicken wire. Here's photo when we first planted the beans, You can see the fencing in the back ground.



      Here's a better picture taken today. There's 3 different types of beans.

      Cheanna - Black Lab/Mix - Got ya 5/99 - 9/21/10
      Buddy (Bubba) - Black Lab/Mix - Got ya 11/2/02 - 3/28/10

      The good news is that dogs can eat them.

      That dog of mine is very interested in my watermelon plant. I keep catching her with the snout in the potting plant. That's with no fruit.
