START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In late spring, once night temperatures stay securely above 55°F(13°C), plant seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Erect strong stakes, tripod poles or trellis, at planting time to support vines. Plant 1 inch deep and 4 inches apart along a trellis; around tripods or stakes, plant 4 to 6 seeds about 4 inches from each pole, thinning seedlings to 3 best plants per pole.

GROWING NOTES

Beans are an easy and reliable crop, but don’t plant seeds too early; cold conditions prevent good germination. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away; new seedlings will catch up quickly. Birds are attracted to young seedlings; watch carefully and protect with netting if necessary. Avoid harvesting beans in wet conditions.

HARVEST AND USE

For the best yields, pick beans frequently, at least every 2 or 3 days. These tasty beans are delicious freshly harvested and the more pods you pick, the more plants will produce. Enjoy quickly steamed just until tender-crisp, then toss with a little sweet butter and a sprinkling of fresh tarragon or dill.
