My dad normally always follows beets with beans they are our best beans usually 50% of the time. You can get in early soil warms fast if they get enough moisture to get going they usually look better than ones on corn stalks early on. I have had beans look tremendous touching my belly button then in August rains shut down then dried out and made 34 beans on stalks were at least 5 bu better that dry year. On most my ground I struggled to grow beans at all compared to my dads ground so I have started following beets with corn this year it was my best corn by ten bushels. In a year with excess moisture that beet ground might just be your best crop. If it gets dry at the wrong time beans or corn will suffer. Farmings a gamble both options have risks I'd plant what you want to for your rotation.
