Here it is Mk 4 version with the addition of drilled holes and cable ties at top replacing string and knots. Makes it easy to position canes.

The advantages of this design are.

1: It allows rain and light to get to the plants better.

2: When the beans are ready to pick they hang outside the frame making it easier to harvest them.

Bean frame almost completely finished.

Got the rest of the bean frame completed and all painted (picture shows almost finished) It is temporarily screwed half way to enable easy painting.

The onions and garlic doing well
