Picking Beans:

             Be sure to pick beans before they get too mature. Mature beans (old & tough,) not picked, will cause the plant to slip into a “mission accomplished mode” as pertaining to reproduction for the next year, and cease just about all further bean production. Bushes kept picked clean will keep producing.
            Never pick beans when leaves are wet, fungus and rust seems to spread very quickly from plant to plant. And don’t let people who smoke pick your beans; tobacco virus (pictured) is nothing to mess with; best to just pull and burn all plants if that happens.



            Tip for next year: When planting seeds don't plant them all at once but make 2 to 3 planting 2 weeks apart.
