One of my pea plants took a sudden turn. Any ideas?


  1. I will check into it and see if I can come up with something.

  2. Ok, let's start with some q's. Is it just the pods that are yellowing and deformed? Is it all your pea plants or just one? Have you fertilized with anything? Is the soil dry or too wet? Is the plant yellowing from the ground up?

  3. It is just the one so far and some of the leaves are yellowing too. It didn't appear to be yellowing ground-up. I have not fertilized. I don't think the soil is too wet nor dry... The weather has been spotty light showers, humid, muggy, warm. It does get watered often, but all four peas get watered at the same time from irrigation. I will check on it again last night.

    I think I discovered what was getting on my artichokes... SLUGS. I thought it was beetles but last night I saw slime.

  4. Are there any aphids on the peas. It could be a bacterial blight or
    Enation mosaic. Could try some nitrogen fertilizer to give them a boost. What kind of soil are they planted in, new or old. Unknown soil could have disease in it. Pick affected peas and dispose.
