French beans

Bingo and thanks.  Although i was watering morning and evening i failed to notice how free draining the soil now is.  The scortch marks were scortch thank god and now with heavier watering the plants are doing brilliantly.  Lost that one.  A lesson learnt.  Weather a little different from last year.

 

Thanks to all.

i have been watering but i'll do more.  And yes beans do get blight, but this sort of thing has never happened to me before so i'm lost.

Well several leaves are going brown and crispy and I thought they were scortched, but one I am not sure as one of them has suddenly totally wilted.  Thought it might be blight?
