I have beautiful purple hull pea plants but no sign of blooms. What to do about this? I have purple hull peas planted. They are really beautiful plants, but there is no sign of blooms. We have never had this problem. The temps here have already gotten in the 90-100 range. What can be done to encourage peas?

Since these are nitrogen-fixing plants and if they are healthy with exception to not blooming, they likely do have too much nitrogen. Give them some phosphorus to balance them back out. Bone meal is a good source of phosphorus and will help encourage flowering. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/phosphorus-plant-growth.htm
