I grew them years ago. The variety that I grew was more cold
resistant than most. I got it from Johnny's, but they stoped carrying
Anyway, one needs to start them in warm soil (Have you seen any soil
yet? I haven't.): I think mid May to early July, depending on what
else you're growing. You could plant them after lettuce or spinach.
However, one only gets one or two beans per pod; so you might just
want to cook most of the ones you got. Great for hummus.
They are low-growing, have ferny leaves and pretty white flowers. I
grew mine as an edging to one of my large beds at S/QV. I think I
planted them about 1-2" apart and thinned them to about 4", but I
don't really remember, and you know how I crowd stuff.
Has your snow melted off yet? I've still got places in the back yard
with almost a foot left.
