Pole beans: Great Vines, No Beans
I am starting to wonder what is going on....
Last year I planted a Kentucky heirloom pole bean and another purple variety. Both grew great vines. No visible insect problems. The purple one produced an OK crop of beans. The green gave up like 1 or 2 beans per vine.
This year I planted another variety of green pole beans (don't recall the variety, but I got it from a reputable local place). Once again, great plants but no beans. Unfortunately, I did not do the purple ones.
One friend said the purple ones are just easier to find. Trust me, I went over them with a fine tooth comb.
I have not noticed undue bird or squirrel activity. There is no apparent damage to the vines...I just do not have any beans. Does anyone have a suggestion?
