Wow! We just love our bean teepee! We started it on June 17th by preparing the soil, setting out the bamboo poles, and planting the beans. We alternated Scarlet Runner beans with Fortex pole beans.

While the beans were growing, we snuck in some lettuce starts.

The children who volunteer on Tuesday from the South Whidbey Children’s Center love it! The beans are tiny now but we should be harvesting them in a couple weeks.
