From Carolyn Pierce, Heuvelton:
When I first saw your post about Garden Plot, I wasn't sure I had anything "unique" to
share, but then I remembered the "edible bean house" we started this
year, so I thought I'd share some photos of it.
The Pierce Family in Heuvelton got the idea for this bean house from Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania.
Beans make their way up their cedar house, along with morning glories for color. Reggie Pierce helps train the vines up.
We originally got the idea from the "idea garden" at Longwood gardens in
Philadelphia,PA (we were on a tour there with the 4H Horticulture club).
This spring we purchased some cedar poles from an Amish neighbor, and
my boys built the frame. We planted climbing beans, morning glories,
scarlet runner beans, and gourds around the base. As you can see from
the pictures, it is starting to fill in nicely.
