Here’s a great gardening project for the kids: bean pole hideout! Take a bunch of long branches or bamboo poles and secure them at the top to form a tepee. Then plant pole beans (or any climber) at the base of each pole, so the vines will cover the structure and make a secret hide-out! More detailed instructions here.
While you’re picking up your pole beans, here are some more veggies that can be direct seeded in March. God, I love Zone 8!
