Ok here we go getting ready for planting the climbing beans. I've got two varieties of CB first is Red Scarlet bean that I picked up from the local hardware and the second is the Lazy Housewife bean that I ordered from diggers.
I've never grown climbing beans before having always planted bush beans so this is new and exciting for me.
You can't pick it up very well but between the two coppers logs there is a light 100 mm wire mesh.
I made this earlier this year and planted sweet peas after adding dolomite and some aged horse manure to the soil.
I pulled the sweet peas out yesterday and today I added two buckets each of compost and aged horse manure.
Then it was a matter of turning it through the soil and giving it a through watering.
I'll let it settle overnight and tomorrow I'll plant my beans.
Here are some of my magic bean mix just sprouting
