If you are having a problem with more foliage growth than flowering or pod production, then you likely have an over abundance of nitrogen in your soil, which is highly probable since beans are nitrogen-fixing plants. Add some phosphorus to the soil, such as bone meal, to help alleviate this issue and promote more flowering, which in turn will produce more pods.
