Pole Beans aren't Cooperating
My pole beans have grown over a foot taller than my maypole already.
A day ago I took a few nylon strings from another maypole and attached them to a four foot tall tomato support. I took the ends of the pole beans and wrapped them around the strings so that they would work their way down the string and then I intended to lead them horizontally across other strings for a while.
Well, they just don't want to do that. They've already changed direction and wrapped themselves around the string facing upwards again ! :)
What do you do with your pole beans when they get bigger than their supports? If I figure out a way to have them horizontally right away instead of trying to lead them downwards, do you suppose they'll cooperate?
