Bean Pole Teepee

I decided to make my gardening dreams come true. The Artful Parent has this cool bean pole teepee and I wanted it too. Tony helped me lash/ tie the poles together and till up the ground. Then I placed it in the ground and June helped me plant and water the seeds. Bay eventually decided to join us. We now have bean sprouts. I can't wait for it to grow into a cool play area for me. Did I say me? I meant the girls!
You can see our sunflowers lined up along the fence. We also have a pretty good amount of blackberries growing this year. In the vegetable garden, we have tomatoes, cabbage, banana peppers, cilantro, basil, marjoram, and squash thanks to Amy and leftover money on a home depot card. Other plants include mint, lemon leaf(?), country onions, irisies and many flowers I have no clue what their names are unless I look at the list Patty gave me. She is cleaning out her landscaping and let us have some of her plants. I may need to go back and get a little more. I hope I will be able to take care of all this growth this summer and next year. I love it. Spring and summer is the best time of year for me. I may try and plant some pumpkins and lettuce later for fall harvest though.
