Pole beans will not climb horizontal wire. Peas will, because they have tendrils that grab almost anything while he vine grows straight. Pole beans wrap the vine around what they are climbing, and won't grow horizontally. You need vertical poles, string, or wire for pole beans.
Well, I didn't want to hear that, but thanks. I have tons of cut bailing twice from feeding the goats. Most of it is poly though not natural fibers so it won't rot so we still have to clean up
I was going to use fencing fabric like the light weight stuff people use behind board fence to keep dogs in. It's got both vertical and horizontal wire about 2" squares. I can always tie some twine to it to help them grab on.
CAD, my dad kind of did that, he uses to have rolls of old electrical wire, we would drive posts about 15-20 ft apart, run one strand across top, then drop twine down every 8" or so for beans to climb. I gave all his posts to my nephew for his garden few yrs ago, guess I will need to go buy a few more. Beans are growing fast, need to get them in soon.
My wife only does bush beans, but mom will only plant 1/2 runners.
I am going to fence the cucumbers though, I know people who are successful at letting them climb up fencing, the veggies don't lie on the ground. We only do 5-10 'mater plants, cages work for those.
Checked last night, almost everything is popping through. Some seeds must've been deeper for some reason, they are just popping through.
We planted some Loofa sponge squash....I am hoping those grow and do good.
