The main task for the day was building sturdy houses for our beans. Several weeks ago we planted our beans in circles in the garden. Ojos del venado and Black turtle beans are the two varieties we have growing now. The houses I Built for them today are made of bamboo poles about 8 feet long. I shoved the ends in the ground and bound the tops with wire in several places for stability. Soon the beans will begin climbing the poles in their quest for the sun.
