Doing a runner

This was taken on Sunday after I finished planting the runner beans on bed 2. We created 3 wigwams, each with 10 canes and 2 beans to each cane. The runner bean crop last year was a failure for us. Like growing the potatoes, we blundered into it poorly prepared and planted too late. This time we are being much better prepared.

We planted sone sweet pea seeds in the greenhouse a few weeks ago and these have been planted next to the canes as well. The idea is that we attract more bees to help pollination.
