This is more of a reminder post. And a you should give it a try now so you know how to.
Approximately 1,200 come in those 1# bags. Next planting season give it a try or do some indoors. It is a good thing to see how they grow and learn how to harvest them.
Beans are high in starch, protein, and dietary fiber, and are also a good source of folic acid, selenium, iron, potassium, thiamine, vitamin B6, magnesium, and zinc. WOW BEANS ARE really good of the heart!
Select beans with a bright color, which indicates fresh seeds. Do not plant beans with cracked seed coats or pinholes, or the germination percentage will be low beside you can eat those, waste not want not.
Some beans grow like plants and many grow like vines. Because the dry beans do not say what kind they are it is more of a be ready for what ever happens. A garden trick is plant sunflowers and or corn with them and if they are vine they will grow up them. And it is a great space saver.
