Many of our beans are edible at more than one stage—fresh snap beans, fresh shell beans, dry beans—making them multi-purpose and versatile.

The general rule of thumb is to plant beans in warm soil (the earliest we can get them in is about a week and a half before the last spring frost) and only pre-soak them if you know there will be moist weather/soil for a few days. Beans should be planted approximately 3” to 6” apart (the longer distance is preferred for dry bean production, to help with airflow).
