Welcome to our forums!
This online gardening community is different, political, and organic. I decided to start these forums so gardeners would have a free place to discuss heirloom gardening, gene-altered food, seed saving, natural politics and products. We are dedicated to saving our food and horticultural heritage, and hope you enjoy this forum for the free-thinking gardener!
Wishing you great gardening,
I feel your pain-I always have to remember to get right out there and close up the coop cuz that blankity blank will be right out there waiting! I've chased it up a tree twice in the past couple weeks. No shooting up here tho-too many people and houses.
Welcome to the Idig family and if you haven't inoculated your peas/beans before I would say go for it- I found that it really did help quite a bit on how the plants could take the warmer weather for me... and after you use the inoculate for a few years, moving your beans/peas around the garden beds your whole garden will have been inoculated and I haven't bothered using it any longer. but I do know that many gardeners don't use it and still have quite good results.
Also I tend to get my peas into the soil as soon as I can get the soil worked up and have even had a late snow fall and it didn't seem to bother them much. But once the summer heat sets in they just go kablooey here. Hope that helps some. EM
I am trying to decide whether to use an inoculant when I plant my peas and beans this year. Is this worth the time and effort? Is there an organic inoculant you would recommend? This is my 2nd year for garden - last years peas did not do well at all.
Thanks for any info you can offer.
