Bush Lima Beans

Post  Too Tall Tomatoes on 3/8/2012, 6:36 pm

Has anybody grown bush lima beans in their square foot gardens? Any successes or failures I should be aware of before I consider them?

I grew cangreen variety last year in a 4 x 8 bed and they worked great. I filled up a 5 gallon bucket full of pods from that one bed. I am planting them again this year, and trying fordhook's. I planted them a little too late last year, so I will make sure I start them this spring.

I planted lima bush and a green bean bush last yr. I found them difficult to find the bean pods, and bush does not mean no support. They fell over on the next sq. and just seemed difficult. I will plant pole type this yr. and plan for a trellis of sorts.

What got me thinking of bush limas was a conversation I had with my Mom earlier today. We were talking about limas and she commented that the frozen fordhooks are alot more expensive than the baby limas. That got me thinking that maybe I can grow some in my garden.

bush limas and bush peas

Post  Too Tall Tomatoes on 4/8/2012, 9:31 am

On average, how much can I harvest from each square of bush fordhook limas and bush sugar snap peas?

Now that I got my boxes built, I have to really figure out the layout of each one.
