Decisions & Gardening on the cards today!  I have two days off work, so a 4 day weekend! Yay.

The sun is shining here in Wellington, and would you believe it, not really much wind at all! It's what they call 'Can't beat Wellington on a Good Day' type of day!

Today I'm going to put some time into the 'planning my garden, as I think that will help with what I do with these beans (this variety is Neekar Golden Runner)

I don't have lots of space so I use a lot of containers in Spring and Summer, so its working out what works in those and what needs the garden beds! 

For the Beans I'm leaning towards putting them in the garden, but on a leaning up the fence. I teepee'd them last year and a few windy days they toppled, only held up by some strategically placed sunflower!

Any tips for growing beans in small spaces?
