fences made for great supporters

the great westbrook wagon train made its way to my house this afternoon bringing beans for planting (sadly no sorghum which i assumed all wagon trains carried). many beans, of course, need something to grow up and in this case being the crafty person i am i went to the abandoned house next door and cut some long branches from the weed trees (in essence coppicing) and wove them into fencing

as the branches dry they will tighten up and make a very rigid fence.

i've decided to keep a notebook this year because i am planting a bunch of things new to me and i am curious about their germination rates and harvesting times

stay tuned as the garden grows
