Is this a silly idea for beans and peas?

10 years ago

Blue Lake green beans and sweet pea planting:

The growing area for the peas and beans will run parallel to the fence line offset 5 feet.

Jute to be strung from the planting area angled up and attacked to the fence. If the beans or peas extend beyond this plane I can add a down-sloping twine on the other side of the chain-link fence.

I'm utilizing the suggestion often made for cucumbers whereby tender varieties are planted beneath the cukes shading the area.

I've not successfully grown beans and peas because of soil issues which I have remedied.

Will this work for them?
