My bush beans fall over after a heavy rain or watering. This usually occurs when they are in bloom or several beans on plant. Is there anything I can do to prevent this?

Here's how I've seen this problem solved -- after planting the beans, place an arc of concrete reinforcing wire over the row. The plants grow up through the wire, and are supported by it. It keeps them from falling over, and keeps beans off the ground. It probably also helps with air circulation, which reduces the chance of disease. Best of luck.
