Butter Bean Pods Are Not Filling Out
We have lush vines, lots of pods and new blossoms, but the pods are not filling out. I read where excessive heat. . . we did have about 4 days in early July that were 100, but they have had ample water and are mulched with newspaper and wheat straw. Everything we do is organic. If they have had too much nitrogen, is there a way to reverse it? Thanks!
If your foliage is truly lush, yes, the soil might have too much nitrogen. that would require a soil test. Lime will usually reverse an acidic soil. You might also have a longer to mature butter bean. Do you see bees? If not, pollination might not be happening. If you need information on soil testing, call your local agricultural extension office.
