leaves light green but growing

I planted the Insuk Wang Kong runner beans that Jim had sent me late last year in 5 gallon containers. The plants are doing great except that one of them has leaves that are really light green (almost yellow) but is growing vigorously. I think it is nitrogen deficiency. Is it? Should I add nitrogen-rich fertilizer?

I had to add iron but my soil is alkaline. Are the veins dark with pale leaves. What is your pH? I got tons of flowers but no beans. They were great for attracting hummingbirds and pollinators, though.

RE: leaves light green but growing

The veins are not dark. I have flowers but no beans yet. But my season is just starting.
