First, one must understand "being the cowboy". This means you do things the best, most efficient way with as little discomfort as possible. An example would be working in the field so as to take advantage of the ever-moving position of the sun and trees - staying in the shade as much and as long as possible.
When the bean plants come up, but before they 'run', you must water the ground around the plants so the canes can be stuck into the ground. The dry earth at our family farm is H A R D!!!
At the point you finish the row (or rows) of beans, you step back and ogle your accomplishment.
