What are the pros? Fast growth, carefree
What are the cons? Need trellis, small seeds
I direct seeded these following garlic harvest, which allowed an easy and productive double crop from those beds. I watered them in (the directions on the package said not to) with no adverse affects. With no trellis, the vines got pretty tangled up and droopy; quite a few mature pods (and thus beans) were lost because they were touching the ground and developed mildew, though of course that's my own fault. The seeds are small and somewhat fiddly, but that's not a major concern. I grew these to add diversity to my bean planting--some that do well when hot and dry (these), some that do well when cooler and wet (runner beans), and some that do pretty well regardless (common beans).
