Tips to reduce water use

We recommend mulching the beds.
Experience has shown that covering the ground with hay or straw can reduce evaporation by 80%. Keeping the beds evenly moist will create an optimal moist microclimate under the mulch. This not only helps the plants to grow, but also reduces the water consumption enormously. 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 crop 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. Drying out the soil causes a huge reduction in the micro- and macro-organisms in the soil, resulting in an infertile soil.
Tests have shown that the addition of water to the entire bed is lower over a longer period of time than if it is only poured selectively. Due to the small volume of the poured areas, as opposed to the large dry volume, they dry out faster than if the entire volume of the bed were filled with moisture.
Similar to heating in an apartment.

Maintaining an energy level always requires less energy than having to reach this level again and again.

The French bush bean Creso is an early, well-known Italian and attractive light yellow wax bean variety. The 16 to 18 cm long, pencil-thin pods are threadless and have black cores. The strong-growing bush bean can be harvested for a long time if picked regularly over the season. It has the well-tried bean taste of grandma's bean salad.
Finds from the South American region of origin show that the first runner beans were cultivated as early as 6000 BC. At that time there were already a large number of different colors and patterns.
Very suitable for preservation.

Planting information
Sow outdoors from early April to May. The seeds should not be sown deeper than 3 cm.
Sow 3-5 beans in a row and press down. Bush beans love warm locations. Pile up at about 10 cm plant height for better stability. Since the soil is supplied with nitrogen through the roots, they should only be cut off after harvesting and left in the soil.
The beans feel most comfortable at temperatures between 18 and 25°C and a wind-protected location. All "phaseolus vulgaris" beans are poisonous because the phasin content when uncooked. The bush beans are generally more aromatic than the runner beans, but not quite as productive. Cultivation is worthwhile, simple and undemanding.
