I live in North FL and grew green beans this year. Last year they were good, this year I got a good crop but they taste woody and stringy not like they were last year and they are the same kind - Blue Lake Bush Beans. They're not as tender. Does the weather or amount of water they get effect the taste of the veg? I wonder if they didn't get enough water?
We got a lot of beans off the plants, just didn't taste very good.
