Beans are one of the most valuable plants grown because they not only produce food for human consumption, but improve the fertility and physical condition of the soil. Nitrogen, a most valuable plane food, is added to the soil by the beneficial bacteria in the nodules which grow on the roots.
Bush beans are an excellent source of vitamins A and B2 and a good source of B1 and C. They also provide calcium and iron.
The bush beans, while responding to rich soil and thorough cultivation, will succeed in almost any garden soil, from heavy clay to light sandy soils. The soil should not be too acid and should receive a generous amount of rotted manure or compost.
The seed is sown directly in the garden after the last spring frost. Plant one to two inches apart.
