Sometimes I’m prone to over thinking things. Maybe I spend too much time with a toddler (who turns 2… 2! on Friday) or it is just my personality. But I had this crazy idea in my head that growing climbing beans wouldn’t work in my gardens. Not enough room, they need a frame, blah blah blah…. I have several types packets of seeds in my collection but I never sow them.
I usually grow dwarf beans. Little plants, fast growing and produce a lot in a small space. However in the last 2 years a rusty fungal disease has attacked the plants. The last crops so bad I’ve had to pull them out. Desperate to keep the beans coming in (1 of only 3 vegetables Mr6 will eat) I dug through my seed packets and came across a packet of climbing beans.
What did I have to lose?
Why oh why have I never planted these before? In this 100L tub I have maybe 10 plants. And the beans are pouring in!
So I’m left asking myself what was so hard about growing climbing beans?
