where do my beans go?
I am having the same problem I had last year. I sow my beans and they just disappear. When I sift my fingers through the soil, to see if maybe they are just late sprouters, there is nothing there. I see no bugs or signs of digging ( I suspected squirrels), and this year we built a bed cover out of chicken wire to keep out birds, but my seeds are gone just the same.Out of a 4' X 12' bed I have had 6 plants come up, and those look like little sticks, with no leaves. This year I even went so far as to sprinkle slug pellets on the soil, but that didn't help, either. I keep replanting, and it takes at least 4 tries to get a halfway decent stand of beans.Where do they go?
