Thin, crunchy, with a line that you envy ... it's beans! Easy to succeed and with a flavor to rediscover for those who have never eaten only canned beans, these vegetables are a classic of the vegetable patch. When to plant your beans? Know that in general, the cultivation of beans is similar to that of radishes and salads: to be able to harvest daily, you have to sow regularly! The planting period is wide, which can extend, depending on the region, from April to early August. Everything is more about temperature than calendar! Staggered seedlings - a few rows each month from April to July - will allow you to enjoy crops until the arrival of bad weather. Difficulty : easy Price : that of seeds, or a few euros Tools required : - a spade or a grelinette - a serfouette - a cord (optional) - a watering can

Step 1 - Put the seeds to soak


Ideally, before sowing your beans, soak them for 24 hours to soften them and promote their germination.

Step 2 - Prepare the ground


Clean up the land that will host this crop. For a deep digging and respectful of the soil structure, prefer the grelinette.

Step 3 - Draw the grooves


Bring a dolly to draw your furrow. If you want them to be perfectly straight, use a cord or make one using a string stretched between two sticks that you will plant in the ground enough to define your route.

Step 4 - Sow the seeds


Now is the time to sow. Punch 6 or 7 seeds every 50 cm. Space the rows about 50 cm apart.

Step 5 - Cover the seeds


Close the furrow to cover the seeds. Have a light hand, because the beans should only be covered a few centimeters. Keep in mind the maxim that says beans must see the gardener go!

Step 6 - Pack the groove


Tamp the soil with the back of the rake.

Step 7 - Water


Water at the time of sowing and then in the following days if necessary so as to promote emergence.

Step 8 - Butte the beans


A few days later, the beans will have hatched and the first shoots will come out of the ground.
When the plants have reached fifteen centimeters, you can butter them, that is to say bring a little soil to the level of the foot otherwise, the feet being buried very superficially, there is a risk that they will bend under their weight or tear off when picking.

Step 9 - Picking time


Your beans have bloomed, they have formed and now is the time for picking. Pick regularly to keep beans always fine. If you want to make your own seeds for the following year, let them grow and seed a few feet of beans. In late regions, do this from the start of production so that you can harvest dry seeds before the end of the season and the onset of bad weather.

Step 10 - Taste, but before ... hull!


Once you have passed the tailing stage - to remove the piece of stem and the tip - all you have to do is taste.
