DAYS TO HARVEST
Sow beans 1-2″ deep. It is recommended to soak beans 2-6 hours prior to planting.
Plant seeds every 2-3″ with 18″-36″ between rows.
Beans are NOT hardy and will die with light frost.
Harvest plump, green pods before any yellowing occurs from late August into September.
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.
