A couple years ago I was inspired to add an arbor between my perennial beds to grow pole beans on to expand my square footage of edible landscaping beyond our small veggie patch out back. Besides being able to grow more of our own food, the arbor makes a nice privacy entrance to the back yard giving it the feel of a “secret garden”. My favorite beans to grow there are the Purple Trionfo Violetto’s which have a lovely pink blossom and beautiful (& tasty) purple beans. This year I didn’t get my seeds early enough and am growing the old prolific standby Kentucky Wonder. Speaking of which, I need to finish this up and go pick some beans!
