Beans supply carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, and minerals. and 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. HARVEST: Pick for shelling when beans are plump and bulge the sides of still green pod. For ease of picking, cut off ends of pod with a pair of scissors, then split pods. Use fresh, can or freeze for later use.
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 easily. After each picking you can also give
them some more water. May God bless. You will need 1 pound of seed per 100′.
You must use a support of some type to support the long vining plants. Use long stakes
forming a tepee or a fence. It can also be planted with your sweet corn and let the bean plants grow up the corn stalks. Harvest the same way
as bush green beans.
