When and Where to Plant:
Select a sunny location and plant in very early spring as soon as soil can be worked. Cultivate soil and enrich with vegetable food and organic matter. Continue planting at 2 week intervals until mid-spring. Plant again in late summer for late fall crop. Firm soil over seed.
Care, Harvesting and Storage:
Provide support for tall growing varieties. Water by soaking soil to reduce danger of disease. Pick when seeds have enlarged in the pod, while still bright green. Hold vine while picking to avoid tearing it. Store extra seeds in a cool, dry place. Heat and moisture severely reduce germination.
