What can I do to get my 'colored' butter beans to produce? They have lots of blooms and with the rain we have been getting in nothern Georgia, the plants are beautiful; however, they are not producing pods.

The rain is likely interfering with the pollination process for the beans. The wet and humidity makes the pollen clump up and it has a harder time transferring within the flower so that pollination can happen. Without pollination, pods can not form.
Try giving your bean plants a gentle shake every few days. This will help them distribute their pollen a little better and should get you some bean pods.
