Step 1: Draw a groove
After passing the hook to loosen the soil, draw a furrow about 7 cm deep with the hoe.
Step 2: Sow
Place the bean at the bottom of the furrow.
Continue along the entire length of the row, spacing your grains 10-20 cm and your rows 50 cm between them, if you make several rows! You can mark the location of your plantations with a piece of wood at each end of the row to mark their location while the first shoots appear.
Step 3: Cover and tamp
With the rake, gently push back the soil to cover the row you have just sown. Pack lightly without excess.
Water the soil abundantly along the row.
A week later, the first subjects are already showing up.
Step 4: Butte the stems
The bean is a crop that requires a little maintenance. As with the potato, but for different reasons, you must butter the plants when they reach a height of fifteen centimeters. Butter consists in bringing a small mound of earth to the first leaves on the base of the stems. This work makes it possible to strengthen the wearing of the rods and thus their resistance to wind. It is possible to stake your plants, either by using small hazel branches, or by planting two stakes at each end of the row, connected by a string or a wire, to which you will hang the shoots. Other maintenance work to be done at the same time: hoeing between rows and weeding.
