Pole Beans

Our pole beans are doing very well indoors, so I decided to plant these instead of our slow growing peppers.  I planed all four plants we stared in one of the tall containers.   For the outdoor garden beans, we will sow the seeds later this season directly in the garden.

Pole beans in center of the photograph.  I strung ten hemp strings from a hook in the top of the window pane for the beans to climb up.  So far, the leaders from the bean plants are more than halfway to the top of the window!

Three of the four containers.

My cruddy-looking cucumber plants.  I am pretty sure that their sickly condition is likely the artifact of the non-potting soil that I used.  It may also be bad seed stock, which I hear is common with cucumbers.  Hopefully they will hang in there.

My two containerized tomato plants have stakes now.  I will probably put some strings on these containers,  like I did for the cucumbers and pole beans, once the plants in them get big enough.  There are also three basil plants and one onion plant in these containers.
