The leaves are getting brown patches on them. Why?

Any number of reasons, are the ones turning brown the lowest ones on the vine? Have your recently sprayed water on the plants? If we could see what you are asking about we may be able to figure it out; would you be able to post a photo?

Yes my lower leaves are turning brown and the tops and seem to be growing. Do I have a problem?

I've got the Bush snap beans and I'm getting a couple of brown leaves here and there, mainly at the bottom of the plants. I still have beans on them so I think I'm ok for now.

On the question of green beans, do they continue to produce all season or do I need to plant more in intervals to have a continuous supply of beans?

The lower leaves will naturally expire and the new growth at the top of the vine take over photosynthesis. you can leave them on the vine, or like me, snip them off because it looks better. Very Happy

Tracy, usually bush beans will produce a big harvest all at once and then they are pretty much done. I would suggest you check with you local County Ag agent about planting them in your hot summer heat.

Tracy my beans continue to produce for a couple months as long as I keep them picked. I have already picked 3-4 gallons and they are still loaded with more blooms coming out. Will be planting again in early August.

I might get a month from start to finish picking from my bush beans. My rule of thumb is to replant when the current planting first starts to flower. It might not be exact, but it's something visual that I can remember. My most recent planting isn't doing so great, however, so I think I may have found the limit for planting them in our heat here. I knew it was past the "ideal" dates, but I was hoping to stretch it out a bit.
