Q.Growing Beans in Morning Sun or Afternoon Sun

Anonymous added on February 22, 2011 | Answered

Could you tell me if it makes a difference if my pole beans receive morning or afternoon sun? I have a fence line and they seem to grow better on the west side of my yard. Do you know this to be a fact?

Afternoon sun is considered to be the stronger sun and is certainly warmer. All things being equal, afternoon sun is better for vegetables, but there are things that could make afternoon sun not as good for the plants. For example, a dark or reflective surface nearby could reflect too much light or the extra warm sun could dry out the soil more quickly.
