Lots of rain has delayed my planting of cowpeas, limas, and peanu
I the north Texas area we have been getting some very bizarre weather. lots and lots of rain and low temps past last frost date.
I have already planted my wax beans, but I have been putting off planting cowpeas, limas and peanuts due to all this wet and cool weather. I am just not sure how much longer it is safe to hold off. The back yard is pretty much flooded now. I will tell you that my English peas I planted in Feb are very happy and have already picked a few pods for snacking on in the garden, but no full harvest yet.
I like to use this siteThe effect of soil temperature on sown seeds to help me to decide when to plant. But they do not list peanuts or cowpeas. All I can ever find about cowpeas is they germinate readily after soil is 65 degrees. I would like to know if that is the best temp or the minimum. And how about peanuts, what temp do they like? And how much muck can cowpeas, butter peas, and peanuts put up with. The soil was on the wet side, before this downpour, but I am sure it is pure mud now.
A little off topic, but I wish squash was no that list, but it is not.
Any help on how to decide when it is right to plant beans. I am personally thinking, that even if soil temp is right, the solid should not be muddy!
