Hi. I never planted bean before. But decided to try it this year in my organic garden. Bought the seed from home depot. The label says to start planting seeds after soil is completely warmed up in late spring. It has been warm since mid March in Houston. So I decided to try planting early. They were doing fine for a first 3-4 weeks although they not growing as fast as I expected. A couple of weeks ago, I started seeing some yellow spot on the leaves. Then, today many of them are like in the picture. Are they dying?
Here are some facts.
- Three nights ago, the temperature went to 50s for one night. It happened a couple of times before and plants were fine. So I am not sure the problem is due to frost.
- I also notice very small green small flies (1/3 size of regular house fly) which I used to see on my jasmine plants and lettuce plants. There are more than usual. They seem to like bean leaves more than others. I spray with organic pesticide couple of times a week to control.
- I inspected under leaves and on the roots of one plant I took out. I see no visible insect on the plant itself. In the ground I see very tiny (2-3 cm long) white worms in the soil. But not that many.
So what should I do. should I just wait until late spring and replant?
