Bean Teepee

In preparation for warm-season veggie gardening, I made two bean teepees... for my beans, of course. I added horizontal rows of twine for additional support. The teepees are open in front to allow for harvesting inside the teepee.

I was a little concerned about the beans casting shade on my greenhouse until I realized that by the time the beans reach the top of the teepee, the sun will be nearly overhead and the greenhouse probably won't be in use since I mostly use it in Fall, Winter and Spring.

    I like the idea of leaving one side open to harvest inside the teepee. I think I'm going to try that this season, thanks for the tip.
