Pole String Beans


guest4254 added on August 15, 2017 | Answered

It took a while but my string beans are finally growing pods, and I picked my first sprouts today. The problem is that there are so many leaves on the plants, it's getting very densely populated with them, and difficult to get to, or even see the sprouts. Is it ok to pare the leaves back some to make it less full? (not to mention all the mosquitoes hiding in there). I have a hard time just trying to get past them to get to the other side.

Though I have heard of some gardeners doing this, the benefit is likely short lived.
