more support

The beans have gone wild. While the eggplants and peppers are not loving the overcast and cooler weather of this growing season, the tomatoes and now the beans have just taken off. 

The beans have grown so much that reinforcements had to be installed. The bamboo poles, cut from a backyard and saved for us, have been installed, along with a heavier gauge line across the top. 

The weight was pulling the entire system of support down. Now the many plants have more to hang onto. 

There are a few bean beetles out there, but no where near as many as in years past. We still hand pick and drop into soapy water, then offer to the chickens. They eat them right up.
