How can I get my green beans to grow faster?
I am growing green beans for the first time. Scarlett runners and Kentucky wonder. They were getting eaten by bunnies every time they grew some nice leaves. So I put up a wire fence that the bunnies don't get through so now they are growing and have several leaves. But don't these plants grow fast? The seeds have been in there for weeks and the plants are only about 6 inches tall? I know weather and watering make a difference and I pay attention to that. Are these just slow growing kinds of beans? I don't use any fertilizer or pesticides at all. Just dig and plant. Any tips? Thanks! Zone 5, West Central Illinois.
