Pickin’ Bush Beans.

Because bush beans tend to produce their beans all at once, this harvest will only last about 2 weeks.


At that time, the plants are pulled up, the ground is cultivated, and more bush beans are sowed directly into the soil. The beans should be mature in 55 days from the time the seedlings sprout. A second row of beans was sown two weeks after the sowing of these plants. This provides a harvest while the beans are growing (succession planting).
