Planted bean seeds vanished
I planted Jade bush beans on June 3 and of about 30 seeds planted, only 1 germinated. This happened last year when I planted the same variety; I replanted later in June and got a good crop, so I wrote it off to cooler soils. But this year has been very hot so I don't think that's it.
I dug around where I planted the beans thinking they might have rotted, and I couldn't find a trace of them! I replanted and then yesterday noticed the soil disturbed by what I assume was a mole near that bed. Do moles or voles eat seeds underground? They were planted at least an inch deep so it's hard to imagine birds got them (didn't see the soil disturbed).
I did see one stub, which may have been an emerging seedling that got killed by a slug or cutworm. But I looked for others and didn't see any. It seems like the seeds just vanished. Any ideas?
