Common beans are a plant from the legume family. Beans came to Europe from the New World in the 16th century, where they were called "Italian beans," and to Russia two centuries later, probably from Poland. They eat unripe beans, vegetable beans.

There are dozens of delicious and nutritious bean recipes, many of which are considered gourmet recipes. Salads and soups are prepared from beans and bean pods, they are served with fried meat, salted, dried, pickled.

Depending on the structure of the beans, bean varieties are divided into shelling (with a coarse thick parchment layer), semi-sugar (with a weak layer), sugar or asparagus (there is no parchment layer). The most valuable varieties, like peas, are sugar varieties. Beans are an important raw material for the canning industry. For canning whole beans (shoulder blades), sugar beans are used that do not have a leathery film in the wall of the bean valve.

The soil is prepared for sowing beans in the fall. During this period, it is necessary to add phosphorus (250-300 g of superphosphate per 10 m2) and potash (120-150 g per 10 m2) fertilizers. It is useful to add organic matter if necessary. After that, the soil is dug up. In the spring, they also apply on a cart or humus, phosphorus and potash fertilizers. Dig the soil once again deeply enough.

Curly bean varieties are good to grow with trellises. Methods for preparing trellises are very diverse, depending on the possibilities, but their height should be 2.5-3 m. Above the beds inside the frame, you can install arcs and cover the crops with foil if there is a danger of frost. Many amateur vegetable growers use buildings, fences, verandas, balconies, gazebos, etc. as trellises.

At early planting dates, beans are soaked in warm water. Then they sprout, putting them in gauze bags, for several days, until the seeds are nailed (the beginning of germination).

In our zone, beans are sown at the end of the first - beginning of the second decade of May. The seeds are planted to a depth of 3-4 cm, and the distance between the rows is 8-10 cm. The beans under the film emerge and develop much faster. The film is completely removed in the first decade of June, by this time lateral shoots (whips) are already developing in the beans.

Bush beans are even easier to grow. Pre-germinated bean seeds are sown in the prepared soil in a row method. The distance between the rows is set to 40-50 cm, and the plants are placed in the rows every 8-10 cm. It is also good to cover the beds with bush beans with a film. Moisture is retained under it and the soil warms up faster. In hot weather, if you do not want to remove the film, you can shade it by sprinkling with a chalk solution or a chatter box from the ground.

The undoubted advantage of beans is their amazing unpretentiousness.

This is a heat-loving and light-loving plant, but it is grown by directly sowing seeds in the ground in late May - early June. You can more accurately set the planting time for beans yourself, they are sown simultaneously with cucumbers, that is, when you can no longer be afraid of frost.

Beans grow best in light, fertile, well-drained soil. Before planting, humus or compost is introduced into the garden. Bush beans are grown on ridges in three rows and planted in a checkerboard pattern. When sowing, two previously soaked grains are placed in the hole to a depth of 3–6 cm (depending on the mechanical composition of the soil, deeper on the lungs). The distance between the holes is 20-30 cm, the rows are 30-45 cm.

Before sowing semi-curly and curly varieties of beans, it is necessary to install strong supports made of stakes or wooden slats (plastic and metal are not suitable, since the plant cannot “catch on” to them) 2–2.5 m high. A hole is made near each support, into which 2 grains are placed to a depth of 5 cm. The distance between the holes is 15 cm. To give stability to the stems, the sprouted sprouts are spud.

Seedlings appear in 5-7 days, they are very sensitive to frost. With the threat of cold snap, the seedlings are covered with spunbond or other covering material. Mature plants can withstand short-term light frosts. The optimum temperature for plant growth and development is 20–25 ° С.

Bean maintenance consists of regular weeding, watering (in hot, dry weather) and loosening the row spacing. To keep watering and weeding to a minimum, the soil can be mulched. Beans (shoulder blades) are harvested after two to three weeks from the beginning of flowering.
