Of Teepees and Tomatoes

The bean and climbing flower teepee (in our case climbing cardinal flower) is one of the structural elements in the Birches garden.  It was surprisingly quick, inexpensive, and straighforward to make. We used these instructions and found them easy to follow.  Not only is the teepee aesthetically pleasing, it will hopefully also be great for playing when the plants grow up and leaf out.  

 

Today, we were also delighted to discover our first green cherry tomato!
