Could be blight. But green beans are susceptible to all sorts of viral, fungal and bacterial diseases. And most can easily spread to other plants (especially in the greenhouse).

Different diseases need different treatments. Search the internet to figure out what the problem is. The sooner you figure it out and start treatment the better. If it is very advanced, don't be surprised if the best treatment is to remove all the infected plants. Heartbreaking I know, but sometimes necessary ... and then a soil change might be required too.

Minimize the spread by keeping your hands and gardening tools super clean. If you touch an infected plant, thoroughly disinfect your hands/tools before touching anything else. I keep plenty of hand sanitizer and rubbing alcohol in my greenhouse.

Crop rotation is very important too, especially with legumes and nightshades.

If you can't figure it out, post a picture and we'll see if any of us recognize the problem.

Good luck.

Is anyone having an issue with yellow spots on your green bean leaves and it’s spreading to other veggies? I’m growing in greenhouse raised bed

My green beans are just showing. :(

CooknThyme has some very good advice and ideas. She is right, a picture would help to identify what your problem might be.

:multi: Oh my gosh!! I have baby apples!! :multi:

There are 8 of them in total!!
A moment of intense gardening joy! Much needed after this horrible week.

In an earlier post in this thread (end of page 9), I posted that one of my apples trees blossomed. But the other tree didn't, so the blossoms would not be cross-pollinated therefore no apples would form.

Well a few days after that post I was at Otooles and they had apple trees in blossom. So I lifted a few blossoms to harvest the pollen. :shhh:

It worked! I hand pollinated as many of my blossoms as I could and voila I now have some baby apples. I hope at least half of them make it to full maturity. The idea of having a home grown apple picked fresh off the tree has my mouth watering!

And people say you can't grow apples at 9000 ft. Ha!

Thanks :hugegrin:
Stealing apple blossoms is not a good long term strategy :lol:
But I'm pleased that it worked!
