    I harvested the first dry pods of the varieties: Thibodeau du Comte Beauce, King of the Early, Nata, Redland Pioneer, Elektra, Gribnoy Aromat, Stoltzfus String and Tiger's Eye. The coolest part of the season has started.

    @Decoy1 My Succotash. This is what the lower old leaves look like. This is what the upper, newer leaves look like after using magnesium sulfate. Additionally, a lot of new fresh leaves began to grow in the lower part of the plants.

    It's the same with tomatoes. Some varieties are more sensitive than others. In any case, such a spray will not hurt the beans. This is sometimes the case when different varieties are grown side by side. They may have different needs.

    For me, this is an extreme magnesium deficiency. I had a similar situation. There is a lot of rain and cold nights in Poland this year. Magnesium sulfate helped. Try it.

    @Decoy1 maybe it's just a magnesium deficiency caused by the cold and too much water in the soil. The leaves look similar to those with a mosaic. Spraying 0.5% magnesium sulfate solution helped my beans . The new leaves are beautifully green. On old leaves, the changes will not reverse.

    My Karachaganaks (8 not 7, my mistake, I corrected) are currently 1.3 meters +/-. It's about 4.2 feet. They are still growing. I will watch the others. Maybe they are influenced by the weather.

    I have 14 Karachaganaks. 6 of them grow as a bush, and 8 as a half-runner. Ridgerunner, which growth type do you consider to be correct?

    Last year it was hot in Poland. There is a lot of rain this year, storms and hailstorms. Beans don't give up, they slowly grow. Purple Kingsessing Tennessee Greasy Mix Hyote Mr. Tung Karachaganak Nata - bush runner bean

    Thanks Bluejay. My camera is nothing special. Small, automatic Nikon Coolpix L31. I used an old dinner plate as background. It's a little tired, so sometimes I have to retouch the background. This can be seen in the first photo in the lower right corner. I didn't notice it before :) However...

    The first pods from beans that grow in pots in my home. With the exception of Alice Sunshine, these are Polish local varieties from seeds from the gene bank, which I sowed to check the type of growth. No one will remember the catalog numbers, so they got the names of the places where the seeds...

    Last ground frosts in Poland. As always in mid-May. I had to bring bean seedlings home. I start transplanting from Sunday.
