This year I made a giant bean teepee, one I could stand or sit in. The beans are really taking off. I chose Emerite green beans (pole beans from Scheepers Kitchen Garden Seeds) partly because they grow fast and tall and partly because they are so delicious. At first I had to tie up the vines to train them to grow up the poles but now the beans are growing up it nicely on their own. I can’t wait till the whole teepee is covered (except for the opening!). What a beautiful centerpiece for the garden!
