Protect the Runner Beans at all cost!!!!!!!!

This past Saturday morning in the garden was rather simple. I did my normal early morning garden check in. I scanned all the kale for caterpillars the green ones. Checked on the white fly population in the garden and tried to kill as many as I could with my fingers and finger nails. Then checked on the runner beans to see how the flowering was progressing and then I saw them…….

Yes, I saw the pods growing and for the moment I was happy untill I heard the birds in the background chirping away as the realized what I realized and I panicked majorly because I knew they had plans for the bean. So I had to make a temporary runner bean enclosure to protect the baby bean pods from the birds. It was the funniest thing I ever built but it worked

It held up most of the morning and early afternoon which gave mt time to go to Lowes and get bird netting to cover protect the runner beans. After returning home I dismantled the temporary runner bean enclosure, then proceeded to put the Bird netting over the runner beans.

I eventually fixed the netting up on Sunday to make sure the birds don’t get in and so far everything is looking good. I even spotted more bean pods growing this morning. I cant wait to harvest them soon.

Happy Gardening everyone!
