This will be my first year to plant pole beans, so I need some poles. In the past I have always planted Blue Lake bush beans, at my age picking beans is hard on my back. Where do I get some good poles? A pack of 5 bamboo poles 5 ft long are $9.99, a bit short and probably will have to be replaced every 2 or 3 years. 1x2 and 2x2 pine boards are $2 and $3 each again probably have to be replaced soon. After spending some time thinking about this I had an idea. Cement rebar is $3.70 for a 20 ft length. If I cut them in 3 pieces they will be 6' 8" long = $1.23 each. Cement rebar will last for many many years.
Does anyone have a good idea for bean poles?
