Does Dwarf French beans die after 1 harvest. The plants had an excellent produce and seem to start dying (with yellowing leaves) after the first harvest.

Could be lack of water fertiliser and even end of growing season. I'm sub tropical and don't know temperate. You still have very hot days in summer - I don't grow in summer. Don't let the beans become too old before picking. I generally had 3 pickings in the spring.
