Planting 10: Pole Beans (Again)

As seems to be the theme this year for seeds that I sow directly into the garden, not many of the Kentucky blue pole beans that I planted on May 15th came up.  Tonight, I planted more pole beans in the parts of the row where none are growing.  I planted the seeds an inch (25 mm) deep and two inches apart.

Those bean plants that did sprout are growing well and starting to climb the trellis.  When it becomes long enough, I wrap each climbing vine a few times around a vertical wire and then it takes care of the rest.

Bean plants are growing on this side of the trellis; peas are on the other side.
