I would not say your late at all.. I put mine in a week ago Monday and it has been cold and rainy every day since.
I am wondering if they will rot before they sprout? Highest temps predicted for the next week are mid 50s and no less than a 40 percent chance of rain.
One year I was complaining about being late while buying seed at a greenhhouse.
The owner told me he planted a few early but did not plant his big crop until June 10th and harvested them in October.
He claimed there were less pests to attack them in the heat of the summer.

Got Lettuce/onions/cabbage/Radishes/Carrots all up in my 4x8 bed. Tomatos in Walls of Water in the bigger Garden. Planted Corn and Beans last Saturday, but with all the rain this week and cold weather I might have to replant. Time will tell.

I've still got 6" of snow on most of my garden. Probably a couple weeks before the frost is out of the ground. It'll be near the end of May before I can plant anything at all.  Hope fall is as late as spring this year.

 Wow Jordan your a "Fur Piece"( That's Iowegian for a long Drive) North of me, and I'll be one happy camper if I can plant around May 10.

No snow here but it's very wet and would take a week to dry to the point I can get back in the Garden.

It's fairly wet here too, but dry enough to drag the disc through. Hoping that'll get a head start on warming it up

Jordan, can you tell us more about your beans?  Are these dry beans?  I bought a pound of Great Northern beans to plant, same beans?

 

Do you cultivate with the tractor?  What are your spacings between plants and between rows?  How do you harvest?

 

We have been using more beans, and I want to grow a bunch this year.

Thanks

Teresa & I transplanted 9 cauliflower, 9 broccoli, a row of sweet onions, some brussel sprouts, and salad lettuce plants 3 days ago.  Waiting for warmer weather to plant sweet corn and green beans.

Yes, I believe these are the same as what you have.
I will be cultivating between rows with a hoe, I planted them about 3-4" between seeds on about 15" row spacing, around 3/4" deep. I think the rows might be abit too close? (I've never grown these before) I think 24-30" would be good though.
The area i planted them in is about 15' x 6' I will harvest them by hand by breaking open the pods, they are harvested when the pods are dry (similar to field peas)

I really don't know alot about these, I'm learning as i go
