It is so bushy, the kids can barely squeeze in under it's leafy canopy! Next year, we'll have to make it bigger.
Of the two different kinds of seeds that we planted, one has been growing very well and one has not done so great. We've had little flowers on the plant that has grown and climbed everywhere. I assumed that this was the flowering Sweet Peas. The other plant is sort of bushy at the bottom of the tent but hasn't climbed much. I assumed that this was our pole beans and I also assumed that we wouldn't have a very good harvest of beans because of this.
...BEANS!!! Upon closer inspection, we have little beans starting to form all over the tent! We are so excited. Ooooh, we can hardly wait for them to get big enough to eat!
So, now I know what the difference between Pole Beans and Sweet Peas is!
By the way, the picture at the top of the post is one of our daily visitor sto the Nature Tent. We see red dragonflies there all the time.
