I have a small raised vegi garden, but want to grow pole beans. How do you construct a pole bean support?

How about making a teepee over each plant? Take 3 bamboo stakes (or plastic or metal), set them equal distances apart straddling the plant, push them down into the soil, then gather the tops of the stakes and tie them together. The beans will climb up the stakes and then up and over and hang down. Make the supports about 5' tall (you'll need 6' long stakes). Hope you have a great harvest.
