Beans are among the richest food products which the good earth yields. In the chemistry of food, they supply carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Beans are easy to grow, well suited for different types of soil from heavy clay to light, sandy soils. Plant in early spring after frost danger is past and soil has warmed up to at least 60F. Direct sow at 1-1.5″ deep, 2-3″ apart in a single row spaced 30-36″ apart or a double row spaced 8″ apart. Keep weed free. Pick pods when filled out to a nice size before pods bulge. TIP: : Apply a stream of pure 3-18-18 liquid plant food on row when you plant seeds (Approx 1/2 gallon per 300 feet) You may also do this when plants are growing beside the plants then till it in. A soaker hose laid along the row is a great way to water them. Make sure your bean plants get at least 1″ of water per week. Do not over water, as bean plants drown easy. After each picking you can also give them some more water.
