I wondering if anyone had an idea of what's going on with my plants. These green bean plants suddenly turned yellow this week. I been watering them once a day or every other day and fertilizing every 2 week. I have this issue with some other plants like zucchini, cucumbers, and some peppers. All the affected plants are in raised beds or planter boxes.

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I forgot to mention that I sowed these plants and have been using soften water up until two weeks ago when I learned that soft water is a no no. I believe the soft water is what caused the slow growth of most of my plants. Could using soft water be the issue?

Probably too much water has leached the nutrients out of the soil. You shouldn't have to water more than 2 times a week. What are you fertilizing with? Your plants have chlorosis and this is caused by either a lack of nitrogen, which is doubtful since beans are a nitrogen fixing plant, or either/or a lack of iron, manganese or magnesium. The spots on the bean leaves are a fungus and is caused by too much moisture.

Water out of a water softener leaves behind mineral salts but I don't believe that this is the problem I am seeing.

I am using Miracle Grow Organics fertilizer. I have some Fish fertilizer coming this week that I wanted to try out this year.

How do I go about repairing the nutrient deficient soil? Would digging it up a little, mixing in granulated fertilizer, and adding a layer of compost help?

The best thing for this that I know of is Chelated Iron. You are already using enough NPK but what you need now are trace minerals and that chelated iron can supply this.

None of my local stores seem to carry this. I will have to order and wait for delivery. Is there anything I can do in the mean time to save the plants till it arrives?

You have to do something about the fungus. I would spray Neem per directions. The picture is what you should get.
