How To Grow
Bush bean can be started indoors, but performs best if sown directly after the final spring frost. Sow 2-3 seeds 1” deep and 2-3” apart in moist, organically rich, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Whether direct sowing or transplanting, thin out strongest starts to every 18-24” in the garden as true leaves establish. Beans need light and consistent watering but, when doing so, water as close to the root as possible to avoid saturating greens known to cause root rot and mildew. Plants thrive from a top layer of mulch to help cool soil and roots. Avoid nitrogen-rich fertilizers which will cause excessive vegetative growth with minimal bean pod production.
How To Use
The vigorous plants bear strong harvests of top quality pods that hold well without getting stringy. The more you pick, the more the plants will produce, and the nitrogen fixing bacteria on the roots of bean plants actually improves your soil. Sow another crop about three weeks after your first planting and you’ll have a welcome second harvest in late summer. Slenderette beans are wonderful for quick cooking, they freeze well, or use them to make jars of tasty pickled dilly beans.
