So I have been thinking about how to create a trellis for the beans to grow on, and I decided on a may pole. I went though many options, a tepee with bamboo, long boards, chicken wire, etc... I was set on the tepee idea with bamboo, but my sticks weren't nearly tall enough. I need this thing to be like, 6 or so feet, and the sticks were only about 3.
So, I found a VERY tall 1x2 in my garage, put a screw in the top (not all the way screwed in) and stuck it in the center of the bed. Then I placed wood screws in the inside of the bed. Then I used some nylon string I had lying around and tied one end of the string to a screw, wrapped it around the screw at the top of the pole, and the back down to the screw on the opposite side of the bed and tied it tight. It turned out pretty well! The pole is in there good and deep and with the tension from the strings, I don't think it is going anywhere. I left the front open so that I could still plant underneath the beans.
