new to forum -- when to pull the beans?

lori_in_pa(6)July 27, 2004

I have bush beans 'Masai' and 'Tendercrop'. I've been harvesting for about a month, but noticed a couple of days ago there were almost no beans on the Tendercrop plants. Now I see some more blossoms. Is it worth it to keep them awhile longer? Or, if I yank them now, is there time for a second crop? I'm in south central PA, zone 6. Our first frost is usually end of September.

If you want another crop, there are plenty of beans in the 40-50 days till maturity range. Sown now, that puts you in mid Sept. I think you're safe to try a 2nd crop.
Good Luck
