Green Bean Teepee

This year we decided to have a little more fun with the food we grow, so early in the spring I started green bean plants indoors and once the weather warmed, we built a frame for a green bean teepee. At the base of each string line we planted the bean plants and between the bean plants, we planted zucchini. It seemed to grow so slowly, then in August it suddenly filled out and we had a bounty of beans!

The green bean teepee has turned out to be a fine place to look for summer bugs.

We also planted rainbow carrots and orange peppers from Cubits. More on those in another post.
