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.
