July: Picking Peas and Beans

Use two hands or a pair of secateurs when picking peas and beans.  The top should come off with the bean/pea rather than being left on the plant.  Pulling the beans/peas off with one hand will often result in breaking a branch off the plant or pulling the entire plant out of the ground.  Pick often to encourage the plants to continue to produce fruit.
