Plant shortly after the ground can be worked in spring, right around when you might plant peas.  Plant on the surface as light aids germination. Thin to 1' apart, with rows 18" apart. Allow plants to dry down in late summer. Harvest by cutting down the whole dry plant into a bag. Free seeds from pods by beating the bag, or driving over it, and use a fan to separate chaff from beans.
