Re: problem with bean leaves

I don't think so. I think it is just sun scald. Were those seeds planted in the ground or were the plants transplanted to where they are? Have you had a lot of real hot, sunny days?

Re: problem with bean leaves

rainbow, they were planted in the ground and yes we've had a few really hot days, but mostly rainy days. (Northern Ohio). What seems funny to me, it has seem to affect only 2-3 rows out of several. I have some planted on the North side of my house and it really doesn't get much sun, except late afternoon. it's effecting a couple rows there too.

Re: problem with bean leaves

It could be they got splashed or sprayed with something....?

I did spray them a few days ago with a light mix of miracle grow, but it's not effecting all, just a few rows.

It looks a little like what I get when it gets really hot and windy. The leaves sometimes tear in the wind and the edges can dry up in the heat.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.

Re: problem with bean leaves

A very few of my bean leaves look like that too. I think it's just sunscald as rainbow said. Temps here have been mid to upper 90's with bright sun! Starting to get a little more humid now with a little lower temps. The summer rains are around the corner, hope they come! :)

Re: problem with bean leaves

Sorry, just noticed you said only affecting a few rows. Maybe something else at work.
