I planted the Rattlesnake bean seeds about 4 inches apart and left them like that. With the shorted day length, cooler temperatures and suns direction across the yard plus 50 or more days from planting to the first harvest, that's not too bad for this time of year. We've also been edging in the upper 40's to low 50's at night off and on for a few weeks now. So, their growing and producing season is pretty much over for now.
Like I mentioned in a prior post, I haven't grown these in the spring/summer so I am assuming they should fill out my 6+ ft. tall trellis.
