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 midspring.
Plant again in late summer for late fall crop. Firm soil over seed.
Care: Provide support for tall growing varieties. Water by soaking soil to
reduce danger of disease.
Harvesting: Pick when seeds have enlarged in the pod, while still bright
green. Hold vine while picking to avoid tearing it.
