Elaine, the smaller bean plants are yours! I just installed this cage for the purple beans and tarbais beans to ramble on. Mint is creeping around and some sunflowers have sprouted, along with zucchini at the edges of the bed. I just made eye contact with a large woodchuck and said "oh really" and he sauntered off. This bed is well protected from invaders and I have high hopes for happy bean picking later in the season.
