catnohat, how's your green bean teepee coming?

I've seen those pictures on Pinterest too, and I've been wondering how yours is doing! Any new photos?

I'm actually dealing with it today. It's been a big disappointment. I have planted green beans twice and have only had one sprout. When I investigate the dirt, I can't even find a single bean. I have never had trouble sprouting beans before. So today I am digging morning glories from my neighbor who has tons of them, and turning it into a morning glory T-pee!

I had my first harvest of sugar peas last night. My daughter and I shared a big handful. They were delicious!

Oh cat!
So sorry about your beans! Sounds like they can be very fickle things. Good luck with the morning glory T-pee.

Congratulations on the sugar peas, though!

Maybe you have a bad batch of bean seeds or sometimes beans will rot if the soil is too cold but that shouldn't be a problem in mid May. Other things that could have done your beans in is birds or squirrels. I usually need to lay wire fencing over my freshly seeded beds or for sure squirrels will be digging through those beds in short order.
