The first thing that popped into my head was "better separate them beans and cucumbers" Propagandhi's Plan 889526


I tried squares together one year! Had beans growing my my cucumber area and cucumbers wandering over to visit the beans! Propagandhi's Plan 889526 Propagandhi's Plan 889526 Propagandhi's Plan 889526


By finally harvest they were intermingled good! Now I plant beans in one corner square and cucumbers in the opposite...of a 4x4 with something else between them.

Of course if I wanted to play with them everyday to make them stay home it might work. But I have other things to do. And them babies start growing like crazy once they get started!

When my cucs & beans were side by side, they merged so that I could not find the smaller cucs.
I would also suggest flipping the peppers & egg plants with the zuchini & squash so the larger plants(with large leaves) are on the outside edges of the bed.

This is what happened last year(I posted this last summer):

My pole beans & cucumbers have merged and grown off the top of the 4 ft trellis. The beans have not yet bloomed but the cucs have. There is such a jungle that I haven't found any cucs yet.

Note to self: DO NOT plant beans next to cucs again and give them both a higher trellis.

Yeah, they're looking quite friendly there, aren't they? I took advice and went ahead with planning the 6' trellises, just to be sure...But didn't know the cukes and beans would get like that, so I'll just have to live with it this year. Maybe I can train them away from each-other to start with, since I know they'll want to intertwine as they get bigger.

Propagandhi's Plan Empty Thanks

Post  propagandhi on 4/10/2012, 8:26 am

Thank you for the input. Did not realize the beans and cukes would intertwine as such. I had pictured, in my mind, them staying to there individual lines on the trellis the way I trained them.

Thanks again.
