So far so good

The plants look healthy right now. It's mid-July and there are no beans yet - seems late compared to prior years. Still optimistic.

There are better options for container growing.

I tried these in 6 inch containers. The plants were small but I had to stake them, and they really didn't produce much. I had much better results with Hickok beans: slightly larger plant that does well in containers, required no staking and produced well.

Great Little Beans

I have grown these 3 years now, once outdoors and twice in a winter-spring greenhouse. These little plants produce an amazing number of beans. Right now, one of these plants at 15" tall must have 50-60 beans growing on it.

It does take a long time for these to grow to maturity in my unique environment. Outdoors in my cool summer garden, it was about 100 days to maturity. In the winter greenhouse (heated to 50 degrees with natural light), I am just about to start picking these beans at 128 days from sowing in January. Planted in April in the greenhouse, they took 80 days. So, it was no advantage to attempt starting them in January!

The beans are delicious, tender, and freeze well.

Rich and flavorful beans are fiber-packed veggies that promote digestive health and are excellent sources of antioxidants that scavenge free radicals in the body. They are also nitrogen-fixing legumes; beans gather nitrogen from the air and load it into the soil to feed future crops.

• Beans are shallow rooted and can require up to 1/4 inch of water a day during hot weather
• Optimum soil pH is 5.5-6.5, mildly acidic
• Apply 1 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer per 10 row feet, and 1 inch of compost

Direct Sowing
• One ounce of seed plants 12-15 row feet, 1/2 pound for 100 row feet
• Grow Pole, Runner, and Yard Long beans on trellises
