It started off simply enough. Maia wanted to help tie the twine onto the bean pole teepee and I said she could take the bottom half while I did the top.
And somehow, I don’t even remember how now, ribbons got involved and she started to tie on ribbons and weave them through the twine.
So for the past few days she, and any friend who makes it over to our house, has been adding ribbons to our bean pole teepee.
We’re taking garden art to a new level here.
I don’t remember exactly how we got started with our annual beanpole teepees. Probably from Sharon Lovejoy’s awesome kids gardening book, Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots.
