Answer: The best soil for any type of vegetable is one that is well-draining, with lots of organic matter to help retain moisture and make it easy for roots to penetrate. In your area, you probably have a "sandy-loam". It should drain nicely, but your plants will benefit if you can work some compost into it before you plant.<br><br>Green beans like full sun and warm soils. Plant the seeds an inch deep and 2-3 inches apart. You can thin them out once they begin to grow. The bush-type plants should be thinned to about 6 inches apart. The climbing type can be spaced within 4 or 5 inches. Be sure to give them some kind of support or trellis to climb on. Keep the beans picked and the plants will continue to produce until the weather gets too hot.
