Beans, Green

(Phaseolus vulgaris) Beans are an ancient staple crop grown throughout North and South America. Direct sow outdoors in spring after the threat of frost has passed, and every 2-3 weeks until mid- summer for a continuous supply. Ideal germination temperature is 70-90 F. Plant seeds 1 inch deep in rows, spacing seeds 2-4 inches apart. Keep the seedlings moist but not soaked. Do not splash water onto the foliage as this spreads bean mosaic virus. (Soaker hoses or drip tape will help to prevent this issue. Check the description: the variety will be described as pole, bush or half runner. Pole and half runner types do better with trellising; bush will stand alone without support. Harvest fresh eating beans continuously to encourage production. Beans are a beloved crop of seed savers as they are one of the easiest seeds to save.
