I have some Blue Runner Pole Beans planted in 2 squares.
When I went out there after some heavy rains I noticed all the bottom leaves are turning yellow with brown splotches and it is progressing up the plants. I have some black eye peas next to them that are doing ok
I have had this happen before and I cut off all the seed leaves
The only thing I can think of that was common to both instances is they got a large supplement of water and a big growth spurt. One plant grew over 12 inches just today

12 inches in a day! You really can watch them grow. Wow. I thought I was just having a bout of wishful thinking when I was looking at my pole beans today - but maybe not!

If there is bear soil/mel's mix under the plants, it may well be the rain splashing up bits of bacteria and whatnot. After some of that on my tomatoes I finally put down some dried grass below then and no more problems since. Knock wood(en raised bed).

Pole Bean Problem Empty 12" in a day? I believe it!

I just had a shock. I went out to visit my garden (again! Very Happy) just now and saw this. My Christmas Pole Limas are almost over the top. (That is two bean plants that decided they wanted to go up the same path, they are tightly twined together.)

What you need to understand is that when I got home from work this evening, they were barely into that next lower square. So in about 3.5 hours, they grew over 6 inches. YIKES!!! Pole Bean Problem Icon_eek

(So do they really go down the other side after they hit the top, or do they stage a revolt or something?? News at eleven....)

Yes they really grow fast
But unfortunatly mine are all but dead. Whatever it was has been slowly going up the stalk and even when I cut the bottom 5 feet of it it still grew
On the positive side they did grow to about 10' or so it seems

Oh no, I am so sorry!! Pole Bean Problem Icon_sad Replant? I bet in the summer heat and given how fast they grow, you still have a shot at it. I live in Virginia and I am planning on planting more beans over the weekend in hopes of having a second crop.

I saw one leaf today on my other bean plant (not the one pictured) that had gone half brown/dried and it kinda freaked me out. I clipped it off and am crossing my fingers it is not a big problem. Have not seen any buggies aside from ants and everything around it seems healthy.
