Bean Pole Forage

ON a cold stormy day in February half term, we d
ecided to keep warm by going on a forage for new growth hazel sticks to be used as bean poles.

First … find a suitable tree in the far-off hedges…straighter the better

The carry them back across a windy field…. easier said than done!
Ok Boys, the kettle IS on!
After tea and buns and a torrential rainstorm
preparing the ground for the beans
tying in the pole pyramids
Planting the bean plants grown from seed in the polytunnel

Ahhhhhhh beans …….
