We've had some very bad windy weather and my new green bean plants (about 5 inches tall) bent completely in half and broke skin of stem. I am hoping, what is in the ground will continue to grow, I took the top halves and put in water. Will they sprout roots? Thanks.
Unfortunately green beans won't sprout roots that way. you will have to replant. what is in the ground may come up if they had leaves below the break, but I would replant. peas and green beans are so fragile in windy conditions they really need strong supports to help them.

i also save my soup cans and other cans...i cut the top and bottom off and i will use them for rings around my seeds to help with the cut worms....they really got me last year..i had to replant..and i used soda bottles..they really helped..so this year i will try the soup cans..they are much firmer than the soda bottles.
I would also get some nematodes for the garden they attack soft bodied grubs and eliminate them.
