Is it too late to plant green beans?

Swifty13June 13, 2014

I've been on vacation a lot lately, and I haven't had the time to plant green beans. It's warm here in Kansas all the way until about mid-September. Can I still plant them? I normally plant them from seed indoors then start hardening them off.

What zone are you in? Kansas has 5a to 6a according to google.

Most bush variety's only take 60 days. So you should be able to plant them.

You can still plants beans. You just won't be picking them until August.

Last year, I planted bush beans over the July 4th weekend, and froze enough to last the winter (I'm still eating them). I say go for it. My only reservation would be whether they would survive your mid-summer heat wave.

I have often planted bush and even some pole beans in early July for a late harvest. But then I do not have much 90+ degreeF weather! - Dick
