Thinning Plants - Knowledgebase Question

I have beans and peas growing in my garden. The seeds were a gift from a fellow gardener. How far apart should I thin the plants? At present, both the pea and bean plants are approximately 1" apart.

Bush beans are usually thinned to be about six inches apart in a row planting, but left a bit closer in a square foot planting. Peas are grown closer together, about two or three inches apart. They would be set against a trellis, or if they are bush peas, in rows about a foot and a half apart.
