Noob needs help!

Post  BuckeyeBrad on 6/24/2010, 7:55 pm

I am making my first foray into gardening this year. I have done a fair amount of research, but maybe not enough. Pics below:



My cucumbers are out of control! In front of the cucs are beans, with jalapenos and peppers in the final two rows. The beans and cucs are becoming entangled in each other, and the cucs are spilling over into the box next to it and covering my spinach.

I am thinking I did this wrong, not realizing how large the cuc plants would get.

Any advice as to how I can get this under control? Thanks to all!

You will need to trellis the cucumber and beans so that they grow up instead of over. Do you know if they are bush or pole beans?

Bush, I believe. Burpee stringless.

If you trellis the cukes the beans should be ok.
