Along Comes the Wind

The poles seem to sturdy when you put them in, and yet within not too long the wind manages to blow them over.   There is a lot of weight in these beans and sweetpeas that are going up the wigwams, and put that against the wind coming straight off the sea over the road – it is not too much of a surprise that this happens.

I will be planting them in a different spot next year (crop rotation and all that) so this may not be quite a big problem as it has been for the last couple of years.  These beans take the main force of any wind coming and as always we seem to suffer from huge gale force storms just as they are at their heaviest.
