Q.Roots exposed on my green beans

Zone Ronda, NC 28670 | Anonymous added on June 28, 2020 | Answered

When plowing my green beans I noticed the roots were exposed and growing out from the beans. I had grass clippings on the ground so I didn’t see the roots until I started plowing. Have I killed my beans?

Not likely. They can tolerate some root damage, as long as this wasn't right next to the beanstalk. This would cause quite a problem. Otherwise, they should recover just fine.
