I went out today with the plan of pulling out my peas but when I got out there half of them are turning yellow but there were quite a few that had produced more flowers. I don't know if I should pull them I fear they will die before the peas mature. Or should I leave them? I was planning on throwing some cucumber and squash seeds in their place. Any advice would be appreciated!
Secondly I planted Norland potatoes this spring. The plants are slowly turning brown and dying, I understand that this is the way of things. Is there any advantage to cutting the plants down as opposed to just watching them fade away? are they getting any bigger as this process happens? I pulled one potato last week and it was not quite baseball size. I put it in the fridge and planned to use it but 2 days later it was soft! Does the whole plant have to die before the skins thicken? What would you do?
