Self pollination is common with beans, perhaps because the flowers are not very attractive to bees (and other insect pollinators). You can give the plants a shake each day to help release the pollen, or you can visit each blossom with a fine camel's hair brush to transfer pollen from one flower to another. If you have two plants, you can try one method on each to see which works best for you. Hope you have a great harvest!
