Newbie Question about Bush Beans

Hi all, I'm a long time gardener, but new to bush beans. I planted Blue Lake bush and Tendergreen bush. They both look kind of spindly to me. Should I pinch them back to make them bushier. They haven't bloomed yet. Thanks for any input.

nope. weed them if needed and pull some dirt up around the stems to help support them. Feed them with a balanced npk source.
