Steven - Questions like the ones above are really only meaningful if
you give your location and USDA zone when posting them. I do,
however, think that, in most locations, it is only practical to
mechanically harvest bush beans.
I'm looking for about 300 lbs of large fava beans. Please let me know
if you find a source for them and/or for fava inoculant.
