Here is our beanpole on July 17, considering that we usually get a frost the end of August first week of September these plants know they have to be fast growing.This picture was taken on August 17, we are beginning to pick beans and the neighbors are sneaking in the yard to see what we are growing!!! Hah Hah!!
I can see now why the story of Jack and the Beanstalk was almost believable. My husband made this pole this spring from a pattern I found in a garden decorating book. The pole itself is 10 feet tall but the plants are already a foot over that!! I hope to fill my freezer with beans or maybe go and see the giant!!!
