|Runner bean sticks. Nikon D7000|
At the moment, the only strands wrapped around the sticks for the runner beans is the string that is tying the sticks together.
Hopefully the beans will decide to grow at some point this year; they have just sat dormant in the soil since I planted them out the other week. They are just sitting targets for the slugs.
Ironically, the sticks were trimmings from the Elder tree at the bottom of the garden; the sticks are sprouting!
