Yellow Indian Woman Beans Growing Instructions
Bush beans grow best in well drained, organic material rich soil. They need full sun to produce best. Before you start planting bush beans, you should consider inoculating the soil with bean inoculant, which will have bacteria that help the bean plant produce better. Your bush beans will still produce if you do not add bean inoculants to the soil, but it will help you get a bigger crop from your bush beans. Plant bush bean seeds about 1 1/2 inches deep and 3 inches apart. If you are planting more than one row of bush beans, the rows should be 18 to 24 inches apart. You can expect the bush beans to germinate in about one to two weeks. If you would like a continuous harvest of bush beans through the season, plant new bush bean seeds about once every two weeks.
Preserving And Storing The Best Rancho Gordo Beans
bush beans, like most vegetables, must be blanched before they can be frozen. Blanching stops enzyme actions that can cause loss of flavor, color and texture. Blanching works best if you heat 1 gallon of water to boiling in a large pot fitted with a wire basket, colander, or similar container. Add no more than 1 pound of green beans (4-6 cups) to the boiling water. If the water does not return to a boil within 30 seconds to 1 minute, then there are too many beans. Once the water returns to a boil, blanch beans for 3 minutes (4 minutes at elevations greater than 3500 ft). After 3 minutes, remove the beans using the basket and plunge them into cold water or ice water. The quicker the beans get cooled down the more crispness they will retain. Click here to learn more
