Planted a 25 foot row of yellow beans and sunflowers!

I planted the row about 45 days ago!The beans are reay to eat and the sunflowers are 3 feet high! Both seem to be perfect. The beans are being shaded by the sunflowers. Now when the beans are done I will ahve a whole row of beautiful mixed sunflowers to end the year! Climbing beans work also as do peas! The sunflowers are great for the compost fo not only greens but solid material!

Anyone ever companin plant this way? I love sunflowers that have 30 flowers on one plant.I have some of the redflowers and they look awsome in the center of the garden with birds all around them!

Neat!

I planted some peas on July 4. They are just now coming on. They did not get as tall as spring planted peas, but they are tasty.
