My son brought home a grean bean plant that was started and now I need to plant it outside. Where is the best place and how do we take care of it?

Green beans grow best in full sunshine, in well draining soil. If your bean plant has been indoors, the summer sun might be a little strong for it at first so try to give it a little protection for the first few days that it is outdoors. You can prop up a piece of cardboard to shade it until it gets established. Your bean plant will need some support so it can climb (unless it's a bush bean rather than a climber). Plant it near something it can cling to (a fence, tree trunk, etc.) Water it once or twice a week and harvest the beans when they're about pencil-thick. Best wishes with your new little plant!
