Probably to keep the wind from blowing them over.

Or to hold the branches up, check out the first picture.

That's right all around. 5 Gallon Homer Buckets. Tied to the railing because the branches were so heavy with pods that they would have laid down on the floor of my porch if I hadn't tied them. I overwintered three plants. Two did well, one looks weak but may recover. I have thirty plants in five gallon containers on my porch for this summer. They look great. I'll hook a couple pics on here.

We finally had some sun and high 70's this past week in the Atlanta area. May have actually hit 80. Last year, my plants would have been double the size they are now. The temps aren't such a setback but they need sunshine! I hope it keeps coming now and I hope we all have fun this summer with our plants.
