just reading an older book and it
recommends planting two seeds per
hole in heavy soil so that one sprout
can help make way for the other.
since i know of at least one other
person here who likes growing lima
beans in heavy soil i though i'd
pass along that tidbit. :)
here we don't seem to have the
problem mentioned that the beans can't
break through the soil. perhaps i
plant them a bit more shallow or the
extra sand and organic matter i keep
adding to the gardens is doing it's
i would probably change the method to make
it some cheap and hardy pea as the additional
seed source so they could be clearly told
this year almost every lima bean planted
came up just fine, but the end of the season
finish has been rather poor. most of the
late ones that i was able to harvest in
previous years have been rotten this year.
that's about the same for the greasy
beans too. most i could harvest last year
but not this year.
