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

RE: catnohat, how's your green bean teepee coming?

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.
