DAYS TO HARVEST
Sow beans 1-2″ deep. It is recommended to soak beans 2-6 hours prior to planting.
Semi-bush type – needs no or little trellising
Plant seeds every 2-3″ with 18″-36″ between rows.
Beans are NOT hardy and will die with light frost.
Allow plants to mature until pods brown. Allow pods to dry, bringing indoors if necessary, then shell these great pintos!
As beans fix nitrogen, they pair well with many other crops especially beets, celery & celeriac, cabbage, potatoes, leeks, and radishes. Strong scented herbs planted near beans may discourage bean beetle.
