One thing I did learn the hard way is that it is best to wait until the corn is several inches high before planting the beans or the corn will not be able to support it.

I think I will.  I'll be looking for the seed tomorrow!

Thanks!
Nothing could be simpler.
I did mine in about 30 minutes.

To be fair, I had prepped the soil several weeks ago. 
I layed humus, cardboard and soil on the plot and watered in the interim. This sweetens the soil. Then I perforated the cardboard with my Garden Claw.
Finally, I went to mounding my growing mix on top.

Planting was simple, too. Since I chose a bush bean, I sowed all the seed at once - instead of staggering the planting as is the case when using pole beans. I also know some people sow soft/summer/bush squash, like zucchini or crookneck. The aim is for the squash to shade the plot to discourage weeds and offer it's prickly stems as defense against pests. Flexibility is allowed.  Laughing 

Again, pretty quick and simple. Hopefully this will encourage you!
