We built the bean teepee yesterday and it looks great. We used three 10 foot fiberglass poles from Home Depot and tied them together at the top with some plant tape and twine. We had Noah stand in the middle so we knew we were making it big enough for him to sit in once the vines grow. Then we used the twine to make a structure for the beans to climb, stringing it horizontally around the poles, leaving a space at the front for an entrance. The kids and I planted the scarlet runner beans around the base. I can't wait for the beans to start climbing and growing beautiful red flowers for us!
