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.

- Something is eating my garden. HELP! At first I thought it was snails because there were quite a few holes in the leaves of my beans and squash. Now, there are just skeleton leaves left of half my garden. I have treated for snails with PAX and for other insects with Seven. I have looked for squash bugs but to no avail. I have seen a great many ants and earwigs. Oh, and my tomatoes seem fine. Any tips?

- We would like to remove the lawn from a large area around some 40-50 ft pine trees and cover the area with decorative bark. The roots are close enough to the surface in some areas that using a sod cutter would damage the trees. Would it work to just spray the grass with a killer, such as Roundup, and then put the bark directly on the dead grass? Would this affect the trees in the areas of the partially exposed roots? Any other suggestions?
