Problems with pole beans

Posted by greenwater87 South texas (My Page) on

Thanks for anyone's help in advance. These beans have been doing well for the past couple weeks. Tonight when I came home from work the leaves have suddenly started wilting, almost to a mushy consistency. So far it seems to have only affected the cotyledon but I can see early signs in the younger leaves and fear this will go rampid. I'm hoping this is a simple fix such as over watering and not a soil condition. Any advise or wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

The 3rd photo didn't come through, but It seems more like some sort of physical damage, not a disease. Is there any chance the plant was hit with cold water in the middle of the day? (Like those big fat raindrops you get sometimes when a Spring shower starts while the sun is still shining?) In the 1st photo it also looks like your soil is plenty moist. I wouldn't add water for a few days.

Thanks for your thoughts. I live on the coast and the wind has been brutal for the past 4-5 days. We also had a front blow through Friday and yes there was some cold rain. Ill certainly let my soil dry out and water more sparsely. Thank you again. I appreciate the thoughts.
