There are several reasons that your beans may not be producing. 1) If you let your beans mature (the big hard ones you mentioned), the plant will stop making more beans. 2) If your beans are planted too close together, the production goes way down. 3) Beans prefer temperatures between 70-80. If the maximum temperature is consistently over 85, the flowers will drop off without setting pods. Heat can also cause the blossoms to deteriorate on the plant without acturally dropping off. Hot dry winds also aggravate this situation. 4)Extremes in soil moisture. Plants growing in soil that is too wet or too dry are stressed by a lack of oxygen and water. Weakened plants produce few pods the mold on your pods is a fungus. Fungi often attack weak plant parts, such as blossoms. Once established on a plant, the disease can spread to healthy plants by wind or splashing water. Remove and destroy all diseased plants. Avoid wetting the foliage and do not plant beans in the affected area for 3-4 years.

- Last fall we removed all of our oregon grape that has been growing for over 20 years to re-landscape a flower bed in our front yard. We put mulch on the bare ground to sit over the winter in hopes to start planting this spring. Now we have several mushroom 'colonies', is what I call it, breaking through the soil, but they are only coming through on half of the 5' x 12' area. I have pulled out the 'first round' of mushrooms, and now twice as mony are coming back, in the same area. How can I get rid of these mushrooms so that we can plant our new daylillies and spirea? I might also add that this area has not received alot of water, although it is next to our driveway where we shovel the snow.
