as dyslexik as I'm daft
- Near to Cross Hands Llanelli SouthWales GB
Make a four legged tent style frame with a cross bar then drill cord plus holes in 15 inch long pegs , knot at the peg end to stop it pulling through and tie off rope on the cross bar in a clove hitch , leave a foot or so over to allow slackening when it's wet . I managed to get 20 bean growing stations of three plants per station along a six foot long cross bar .. width of the tent was about four foot , three foot trench 3 foot deep filled with stable muck covered in several months of The Times soaked in water , then covered over with top soil ... so it stood proud of the garden .Bean seeds in pots on May 2nd. Still no signs of life!
Got some coir rope in Lidl, was 2 for 1. There's 2x15m in each pack. Was going to string my bean frame with it using just a round turn and two half hitches on the tubular frame, top and bottom. Figure if it goes slack I can just re-tension it.

A hot bed done like that will see you wondering how to use or preserve your beans . put a few yellow wax & French style climbers at one end and you'll have beans for dilly pickles and drying .
Dried red kidney beans should be boiled for several minutes and the water thrown away to get rid of nasty stomach ache / fatal toxins . Re boil them in clean fresh water .
