Pole Bean Seed Planting Information:

Pole beans are great for small gardens where you have limited space. Pole beans have higher yields than bush beans, but require some type of support. They come in a number of colors, including green, purple, and yellow pods. Plant your pole beans in early summer when the danger of frost is over. Plant seeds outdoors directly in the garden. Pole beans require a richer soil than other beans. Plant in 2 to 3 weeks intervals for a steady harvest until about 3 months before first killing frost in the fall. Plants can grow 3 to 10" tall.

Warning: Do not plant in cold wet soil or you may experience poor germination!

Soil Requirements:

Requires rich fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Beans do not like soil that is too moist. Water during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Pinch or cut the pods off carefully to avoid damaging the plant. Pick every few days for tender beans. Frequent harvesting also encourages plant to produce more pods.

R - Rust

Scientific Name: Puccinia asparagi, Puccinia sorghi

Type: Fungus

Rust, also known as Common Rust, is a world-wide soil borne disease that affects the growth of asparagus, cantaloupes & melons, corn, and lettuce. It is one of the most destructive disease in growing asparagus in the United States. The disease affects the ferns on asparagus. Lesions develop and turn cream-orange color, then turn a reddish-brown color, then eventually turn a brick red or rust color. During the winter the lesions will turn a black color. Severe infestation stunts or kills young asparagus shoots. The infected plants should be removed to avoid further infestation. When corn is infected the disease affects the upper and lower leaf surfaces, where small specks appear on the leaves, then develops into small tan spots, and distinguished by cinnamon-brown pustules. These pustules blister and turn dark brown to black late in the season. Corn stalks are weakened and stalk rot potential increases. Significant damage to upper leaves results in significant yield losses. Common rust spreads by windblown spores. The disease is also favorable cool and moist conditions when temperatures are 68-72 F, and usually occurs when there is nine hours of wet weather. The best option is to maximize air movement between the plants and to use disease resistant varieties.
