    Mowed some clover was afraid to at first but I knew rain was on the way. I don't like mowing clover once it gets hot.

    I have done nothing to them other then Roundup .. I didn't even do a soil test and no fertilizer.. I did toss out a little ag lime last year but not nearly what I should have ( was spreading with a shovel)

    Beans look great !!
    That is the way deer do they jump and kick their back legs off the fence to clear the fence. It won't be long until it will be low enough for you to about step over .
    I have three acres soybean field and woven wire above it to keep cattle in . I have spots that look way worse from deer jumping over, in and out of the field.
    Sometime I wonder if doe's do this intentionally so the fawns can get across the fence.

    Give them some time . There is a field of early planted beans down the road from me that are maybe 14" to 16" tall but they look almost dead from all this rain. It is some of the best soil in my area and the beans look copper colored and you can see the ground all over the field.
    The beans are roundup ready 1 and are from Arkansas . These beans I can save ;legally . They produce a smaller size bean but produce around average 50 to 55 bushel per acre .
    I have shot quail from around these beans and they were full of beans . Deer destroyed two ( 3.5 acres) fields and worked badly on other fields. Turkey stayed in the fields before and after I harvested them eating left overs.

    Im encouraged. My beans were planted 6 weeks later than yours and 12-14 inches high and looking pretty good in most places. I have mine planted on several small hilly clearings. I may spray some glyphosate this weekend depending on weather, but weeds have not been too bad. Browse has been heavy but Im hoping we get some sun and they take off to the point the deer cant keep up.
