Post  altagarden 10/3/2010, 1:04 pm


I had a small crop of sugar and snow peas this year that I planted in April. But like last year they started to get brown spots on the leaves and pods in August. It was still producing new pods at the time. It started at the soil level and worked it's way up. When I pulled them up the part of the root that was underground was black. Is this normal?

I realize peas are a spring crop, but I am in zone 3 so it is cooler here. Can anyone help me? Did they reach the end of their life span or do I have a disease in my soil, such as wilt?

Thanks

One of the fastest ways I have found to diagnose problems is to go to google images and put in whatever ails you, like "pea diseases". Do not put in "black pea root" unless you want pictures of a certain band.

Hmmm, still not sure but I found a really helpful link of veggie diseases in my area. Black rot seems to be a bad sign.

Since we are "neighbours" it is nice to find out how things are going for you. A lot of what works in Alberta, works for me here in central BC. Which is why I have almost all of Lois Hole's gardening books.

Thanks for posting that link. It is always helpful for me to have links that deal with things that are closer to my zone. My peas performed very poorly this year too and I don't know what the problem was. I pulled them up ages ago and threw them in the trash so I can't even remember what they looked like. I will try them in another location next year to see if that makes any difference.

Better luck next year for you.

Did you use pea innoculant? Mine did horribly this spring, too, but I hadn't grown peas in the area before, I think that was at least half of my trouble.

Yes I did. They did fine for a month or so, producing lots, then died. Same problem last year. Maybe I will go a season without peas and see if that helps that spot.

Since you have Hole's Greenhouses in your province, I would contact them and see if they have any suggestions as well. I would hate to give up on peas.
