Gearing Up

April 20th, 2015

Yesterday was beautiful and I wanted to spend as much time outside as I could. After putting up a low tunnel to protect my seedlings from the week of rain and cold nights we’re supposed to have, I headed back into the woods to clear out a few saplings. These saplings will be used to make bean and pea towers, just like the ones I used to have in Ohio.

It’s always nice to be able to procure garden supports without spending money. These are perfect because the saplings need thinned on the back hillside anyways. Killing two birds with one stone is always the most efficient way.

What kind of supports do you like for beans/peas and other climbers?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
