A Case for bush (dwarf?) beans

A Case for bush (dwarf?) beans

There is no arguing that pole beans yield far more beans than bush beans, and I certainly couldn't imagine canning a years supply without them. Nonetheless, bush beans also have a place in the garden. For one thing they bear earlier, witness today's harvest, a good two weeks before their pole bean cousins. For another, they can be planted continuously whenever a spot in the garden opens up. I plant 6-8 beans to replace each cauliflower plant as they come out. For another, they are in and out quickly, so the beans I plant today will be out of the ground in time to transplant some kale or brussel sprouts.
