Beans shedding their soft hands

New and old growth.
The leader seeks the string.
The soft growth coaxed by the pampering comforts of the greenhouse are nearly gone. Unable to withstand the harshness of our cooler, wetter spring, the initial leaves have withered. But it seems as though they've made it beyond the transition and are putting on sturdy growth. The concern is: have I stunted them overly? I doubt it, but that's my wished outcome. I'll see, of course, as there is nothing I can do now that I've sent them this far down their path. I do have a flat of their cousins in reserve, growing within the pampered setting of the greenhouse, where the danger is stunting them through space constriction.
