I have a question when do you call it quits on beans plants, vine or bush. Sometimes I really know as the plants just look plain bad, but on the vines it is harder to know how long they will go on producing. I had beans vines growing that froze during Dec. I cut them back some and they came back nice. I started getting beans about a month ago, some look like they are continuing to get new flowers, but is there like a peak on a plant and they just go down hill, or because it is really getting into the warmer weather will then continue through the spring. I have Rattlesnake Beans, Fortex Pole Beans, and Blue Lake pole beans. Should I trim them back. Thanks, I just don't want to leave them on too long, or rip them out prematurely.
I love this! - There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.
