Some green beans flat and tough
by susan threlkeld
comparison two on left flat, other two are normal
My husband has been gardening for yrs. we live in north georgia a good climate, enough water,sun, the soil is good. Question: Each yr. the half runner green beans, have had more and more flat and tough beans. It wasn't so bad when there were a few here and there but now there are a lot. I think my husband said he heard someone else complain about this problem, so we feel like it is not just us, or our soil, but maybe the quality of seed. Think maybe there is a better place to buy the seeds, he uses the same farm store each yr. wondering if other people are having this problem. Flat, tough half runner green beans. If you get a bite of one of these flat beans in your mouth, it is like a piece of stringy leather.
the picture shows two beans on left are flat, the other two normal.
