    OK, this is a dumb question....But, if you plant beans where the bees can't get to them, will they still make more beans?

    Yes, as long as there are other insects available to pollinate them. Or if you're planting them indoors you can pollinate them yourself with a brush.

    They might also be self-fertile depending on what they are.

    Well, I don't know if they are self fertile or not.

    Humm fertilizing a plant, myself, seems kind of kinky.

    I won't stoop so low as to inquire as to whether they are pole or bush beans.

    It really is no thrill. Plants are just too many "degrees of seperation," species-wise.

    I've pollinated lots of marigolds and zinnias, myself. Once I actually started doing it I was too busy trying not to wreck the stamens to think of anything kinky really!!

    Beans are probably no different, just be careful and have fun squinting down at the flowers!
