BEANS - LIMA BEANS

(Phaseolus lunatus)

Soil pH - 6.0 - Sow the seeds 1 inch deep, about 6 inches apart, in rows 18 inches apart. Beans do not do well in a wide row planting. They must have room on either side for maximum production. Plant after all danger of frost has past. Do not plant too soon! If the soil has not warmed sufficiently, the seeds will rot in the ground before they germinate. For an earlier crop, place black plastic over the row one week before planting. Slit the plastic with an X mark every 6 inches and plant 2 seeds in each opening. Make sure the soil underneath the plastic is thoroughly tilled. Use Rotenone or pyrethrum to control Mexican bean beetles. Avoid overhead watering and do not handle plants when they are wet.

Pole Lima Beans - Till an area 4 feet by 4 feet. Incorporate compost into the soil and cover the bed with black plastic. Make a teepee out of 3 to 4 poles and stick into the bed. Cut a circle of plastic out around each pole. Plant 6 to 8 seeds around each pole, thinning to 3 plants per pole. Use a soaker hose to water the bed.
