Bean Question

sunnyside1(z6/SW Mo.)July 10, 2009

I was so proud of my two little rows of bush beans and my pole beans which had sprouted and had about four leaves on each. Last night some bug ate the leaves off most of them, left the leaf stems, and spared some. My fault -- I should have put sevin on them yesterday.

Will leaves come back on bean plants or do I need to compost those and plant new bean seeds? I don't have any experience with this --

Sunny, if they got all the leaves, they might be goners. I have never had that happen. The JB did skeletonize
some of my pole bean leaves before I noticed, but they will be fine.

Here is a link to MU's planting guide that might help about when to replant.

Good luck.
