I planted them too early I’m sure. I’m in some 6 I honestly didn’t think they’d grow this fast since they grew so slow last year I started earlier. We will be having a 38 degree night next week. You think they’ll survive?

They will survive ok. They will just stop growing as fast but they will catch up as long as it doesn't frost.

ChelswannabeGT,

Yours should be fine. I have three different types of pole beans that recently survived two consecutive nights of 32 deg low temp. They are just fine....and about the same size as yours.

Make sure they are well watered ahead of the expected lows.

Yes, we can several quarts of green beans, pickle several jars of the yard long beans, and freeze several gallons of mature pinto type beans. We like 'em a lot!
Thanks.

Pole beans can be earthed up (like you would hill potatoes) to the top of the stem, to protect that part from frost, then cover the tops with horticultural fleece, or kitchen paper towel, pinned down, around them.
How hardy plants are is, to some extent, defined by the conditions they have already had; if they've been protected from cold and wind, this will compromise their natural hardiness.
