Re: August *Garden Chat thread*
Hey ladies, how are your snap bean crops doing? I know a lot of us have had heat and when I search the specific issues I'm having with my crops I find that it all points to too-high temps. My bean plants have deeply grooved dark and curled leaves, blossom drop and what beans do set are small and curved into a perfect "c" shape. The only beans I'm getting perfect lovely beans from are the bush beans. I can't complain about them. They are pretty and the beans are huge. But I won't get the same crop from them as the pole (runner) beans. It stinks. Is anyone else having trouble? Last year I had beans coming out my ears... maybe it was a cooler year?
