    To begin, the mulch layer was rolled-back, the soil was roughed-up a bit and we eyeballed where, what would go.

    Then we set up all the wigwams at once. The beans were germinated at home and hardened-off on the balcony. The broad beans were the first to go in because they did not need wigwams. Eventually they needed some sort of peripheral support.
    We use root trainers to get most of our veggies going. You can see why here:

    Such lovely rootballs to begin their productive lives with. After a few weeks they were taller and began blooming.

    We set out three types of climbers— Rakkers, Blauwhilda and some yellow spekbonen.

    Finally a view from a distance to give you an idea of how it was on planting day.

    You can also see how the spuds were planted in their deep trenches. They were looking good on that day. We are well chuffed with their progress, in spite of all the rain.
