Q. Bean Seeds

Should I soak the bean seeds overnight before planting? I have Fava, Bush Bean Gold Crop, Dragon Langerie Bush and Vermont Cranberry to plant. I think I have heard you should soak some before planting hard seeds.

You can let the seeds dry in the pod, then bring them indoors to finish drying. Properly dried, they can be stored in closed jars for up to 4 years. This article has more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/beans/harvesting-bean-seeds.htm
