I have planted beans and peas in soil that has been heavily composted. Do I have excessive nitrogen? Do I need to supplement the soil with something else? I live in the desert SW and the soil is very sandy. The plants are very healthy, but are not blooming.
Peas and Beans

If they are healthy but 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.
Check your ph. If the ph is to high phosphorus will not be available and it is necessary for flowering and production.
