Beans are an ancient staple crop grown throughout North and South America. Sow bean seeds 1-2 inches deep in full sun, when danger of frost is past. Soaking for 1-2 hours before planting speeds germination. Beans will rot if soil is cold or very wet. Sow bush types 6-12 inches apart in beds; pole beans 6 inches apart in rows. Provide support for pole types. Harvest for snaps when pods are good-sized; keep snaps well-picked, as production slows as seed matures. Strings will develop in over-mature pods in any variety. For dry beans leave pods on the plants until dry, or pick when leathery, and dry indoors.
