Hi, I'm Stan De Freitas, Mr. Green Thumb, for On Gardening. We're talking about beans. These happen to be the Kentucky blue. Now, if Big Brown had eaten these seeds, he probably would have won, but he didn't, and you saw what happened. Now with the Kentucky blue, you're going to cover these over. These are nice white seeds. You're going to cover them over about a quarter of an inch in size. I like them cause' it's a nice bush bean. That means in about eighty-five; ninety days you'll have this full, and you just kind of cover them over. Take your soil, and make sure you cover them about one quarter of an inch deep, and you'll have a nice big bush bean. Now you can get string beans that go up on different strings. Bush beans are nice, cause' they tend to stay relatively slow or low to the ground, and they're going to do fantastic for you. You should probably get two or three harvestings off of each bush, and beans of course are great to have. They're a good source of protein, good source of vitamins. Beans, of course are great to have in your yard and garden, and as always, of course I'm Stan De Freitas, Mr. Green Thumb, for On Gardening.
