Not Rotating Beans

Anonymous added on March 21, 2011 | Answered

If beans are going to be planted in the same spot all the time, what should be added to the soil to improve it? Also, we had flourishing bean plants, but few beans, and the beans we had were soft and lacked the seeds inside the seed pods. Do you know how to fix this?

Crop rotation is actually pretty important, and without it, you're bound to have problems like the ones you've already encountered. I would recommend rotating your beans in order to give them a healthy chance. You may also want to consider using inoculant. These articles will better explain both crop rotation and inoculants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/vgen/rotating-vegetables.htm
