Tips to reduce water requirements

We recommend mulching the beds
Experience has shown that by covering the floor with hay or straw, evaporation can be reduced by 80%. If you keep the beds evenly moist, an optimal humid microclimate will be created under the mulch. This not only promotes the growth of plants, but also enormously reduces water consumption. On our farm we only water every 2-3 days and irrigate a 200 m2 cultivation area in the Algarve in Portugal with 500l of water. Our beds are always moist, which promotes plant growth and harvest quality.

It is also advisable to keep the beds moist at all times, even if the bed is not used for a certain period of time
The desiccation of the soil leads to a huge decline in micro-and macro-organisms in the soil, resulting in a barren soil over time. Tests have shown that the water content in the entire bed with full-scale irrigation remains longer than if watering is only carried out selectively. Due to the small volume of the poured surfaces, in contrast to the large dry volume, they dry out faster than if the entire volume of the bed is filled with moisture. Similar to heating in an apartment.

Maintaining an energy level always requires less energy than having to achieve it again and again.

The 'Blauhilde' runner bean is an old, annual, late and special blue lover variety. Already 6000 BC. There were a large number of different colors and patterns in beans, which are only being rediscovered today. This extremely robust variety produces rich harvests even under adverse circumstances. The plant produces 25-27 cm long, straight, thick fleshy and blue to purple colored fruits that remain tender for a long time. When cooking, the pods turn into a bright green, which makes them also called a magic bean. The taste is strong, aromatic and develop extremely tasty threadless schooten. Due to the late yield, this variety is well suited in combination with early varieties, for a long bean season. The plants also thrive in large pots.

General
Beans can be sown in rows or in clusters, as needed. When the eyrie is planted, five to six seeds are sown together in a planting hole, with a distance between the holes of approx. 40 cm and a row spacing of approx. 100cm. This variety needs a scaffold for climbing up. Beans are in need of heat and need at least 10 ° C to thrive, 18-25 ° C are optimal.
Bean prefers a sunny or semi-shaded and sheltered site with a nutrient-poor, sandy-loamy, humus, loosened and deep soil. Avoid waterlogging.

Additional tips
Sow seeds no deeper than 3 cm. Strand beans are more demanding than bush beans and cannot tolerate permanent moisture or drought. Since the soil is supplied with nitrogen through the roots, they should only be cut off after harvest and left in the soil. Due to the nitrogen excretions on the roots of the beans, planting in mixed culture promotes surrounding plants. All “Phaseolus vulgaris” beans are toxic uncooked because they contain phasin. In order to quickly obtain a fine, crumbly and well-drained soil, an additional incorporation of biochar and primeval rock flour is recommended.

Type of propagation
Spread occurs via seeds.

Care Plants
A deeply loosened Beet is sufficient.
